That sucks for the homeless shelter (and the homeless who were previously there), but it's good you've gotten involved.
And you don't necessarily have to give away dry pasta. I believe that was suggested (besides the obvious FSM inspiration) mainly because most food banks like to receive non-perishables.
BTW - if you know of any food bank dropoff locations that other Little Rockians (what do you call someone from Little Rock? Little Rockers?
) can use, feel free to post some details here
But I for one am glad to have you aboard. Fresh meat! Hooray!
