You see them everywhere this time of year: boxes, bins and barrels yawning in bank lobbies, church foyers and office kitchens, hoping for your donations of nonperishable foods.
Do you feel compelled to detour from your daily tasks to pick up a few cans of lima beans or a jar of peanut butter? Or will you rummage through your cabinets for a can of chickpeas your old roommate left behind?
Or have you ever considered donating straight-up cash to that worthy cause instead?
Food drives are noble, but they may not be the best way to get food to those in need.
Sorry, but Food Drives Are Inefficient
In 2016, about 15.6 million households in the U.S. struggled with food insecurity, meaning they don’t always have enough food to sufficiently feed everyone in that household. At the same time, an absurd amount of edible food gets tossed in the U.S. each year.
What can the average person do to help? Organizing or donating to a food drive seems like a great option — after all, you’re able to take a small physical step you can see. It’s right there! The piles of food are right there, and they’re going to a place where they can feed people in need. And if you’re a savvy shopper, you’ve used coupons or otherwise gotten a deal on those cans and boxes.
So why do we keep seeing headlines like this????
It’s because food drives may mean well, but they’re not the most efficient way to feed the hungry.
A hodgepodge of donated goods requires work to transport, sort and distribute, and food banks are already often understaffed or struggling to retain volunteer help.
On top of that, canned and nonperishable food isn’t necessarily the healthiest. Feeding America reports that food bank recipients most frequently request milk, and fresh fruits and vegetables. These items aren’t suited for that donation bin that might sit in your apartment building’s lobby for a month.
In a televised interview, the director of one Iowa food bank said that her organization can often get food for half the price you’d pay at the grocery store or less.
Genevieve Ruitort, chief development officer of Los Angeles’ Westside Food Bank, confirmed that food banks often pay less. “We buy food on a wholesale level, and we work with farmers so we can take the dollar you might spend on a single can of beans, and turn it into exponentially more food,” she said in a segment on “Adam Ruins Everything.” The TruTV show debunks misconceptions about how the world — including canned food drives — works.
The are worse things you could do than host or donate to a food drive. You could take your cans of beans and throw them directly into the nearest body of water, for example.
But the greatest impact you can make to reduce America’s food security problem is giving cash — no matter how small the amount.

Here’s what your child will receive if they order “I don’t know,” “I don’t care,” “I don’t want that,” or other variants of the same discontent at one restaurant in Maryland.
“I don’t know.” — Triple layer PB&J for $ 2.50
“I don’t care.” — Grilled peanut butter & banana sandwich for $ 3.50
“I’m not hungry.” — Basket of chicken tenders for $ 7.00
“I don’t want that.” — Kids fries for $ 3.50
“What?” — Cheese quesadilla for $ 4.50
On Reddit, where an image of the menu’s unusual offerings was shared, many parents are commiserating about the appropriateness of the names give to each selection — and adding more.
Requested options include additional dishes for “But I wanted to go to McDonalds,” “It’s not fair,” and “I want to go home!”
Might I suggest noddles with butter, a completely plain hamburger, and boxed mac and cheese?
The thing is, I waitressed in a Denny’s-style restaurant for years when our kids were little. Not only have I heard it all, I empathized.
Of course it’d be great if all kids were always ready and willing to be more adventurous eaters, but sometimes (let’s be real here, most often) you’re not at a diner for the culinary experience. Everyone’s hot, tired and famished — and any food that’s guaranteed to get eaten is what you need ASAP.
Along the way I learned to pick up on a number of cues from parents. With as little as a widened eye or tilted head I’d take the cue they were silently begging me…
Can you please not rattle off the entire beverage list? Milk, juice, water and maybe Sprite will be just fine.
Please, for the love of all that is holy, make sure nothing is touching! This naturally would include offensive items, such as butter on a pancake, being restricted to a ramekin dish rather than melting and destroying nearby foods.
Plain! Completely plain! No lettuce, no tomato, no mustard, and there’s going to be a complete meltdown if that hamburger arrives with so much as a speck of “secret sauce” on the bun.
Can you make it hot, but not too hot? Please cook my child’s fries, grilled cheese, and the like so they’re done, but then magically make them cool enough to eat immediately.
All I can say is some requests were easier to fill than others. In the meantime, if you’ve got an overtired over-hungry picky eater, take heart knowing you aren’t the only parent out there putting in special requests with your server — or putting ice cubes on French fries to cool them down.
I thought it was the strangest thing the first time I saw it, but then it happened again and again. I suppose you do whatever it takes when there’s a hangry beast sharing your booth.
What would you add to this kid-coded menu? Do you make any special requests?

Naked In Dangerous Places: The Chronicles Of A Hungry, Scared, Lost, Homesick, But Otherwise Perfectly Happy Traveler
Finally, after years as a struggling radio host, Cash Peters has been given his own TV adventure show on a big-time travel network. The idea is simple: “Let’s dump him in an unfamiliar culture in a faraway land with no money and no place to stay, and see what happens.” Unfortunately, there is one major problem: Cash doesn’t want to go. Not only is he NOT the adventurous type, he is afraid of nearly everything and horribly allergic to the rest. Bottom line: they’ve given the show to the wrong guy.Naked in Dangerous Places is the story of one man’s efforts to remain sane in an insane world. Told with wit and shameless honesty, it documents a yearlong journey through exotic lands, from Kenya to Cambodia, Morocco to Dubai, as Cash drops in on fascinating cultures, eating, drinking, even sleeping in cow-dung huts with the locals, and eventually proving the truth of the old saying “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.” Though, to be honest, killing you is more likely.
What Are You Hungry For?: The Chopra Solution to Permanent Weight Loss, Well-being, and Lightness of Soul
Basis for the upcoming PBS Special After promoting this message worldwide for thirty years, bestselling author Deepak Chopra focuses on the huge problem of weight control in America with exciting new concepts. “What Are You Hungry For?” is the breakthrough book that can bring weight under effortless control by linking it to personal fulfillment in every area of a reader’s life. What are you hungry for? Food? Love? Self-esteem? Peace? In this manual for “higher health,” based on the latest findings in both mainstream and alternative medicine, Deepak Chopra creates a vision of weight loss based on a deeper awareness of why people overeat – because they are trying to find satisfaction and wind up using food as a substitute for real fulfillment. Repudiating the failed approaches of crash dieting and all forms of deprivation, Chopra’s new book aims directly at the problem of finding fulfillment. When that problem is solved, he argues, normal eating falls into place automatically, and the entire system of mind and body achieves what it really desires. “Everyone’s life story is complicated, and the best intentions go astray because people find it hard to change,” writes Chopra. “Bad habits, like bad memories, stick around stubbornly when we wish they’d go away. But you have a great motivation working for you, which is your desire for happiness. I define happiness as the state of fulfillment, and everyone wants to be fulfilled. If you keep your eye on this, your most basic motivation, then the choices you make come down to a single question: “What am I hungry for?” Your true desire will lead you in the right direction. False desires lead in the wrong direction.” Wherever you are in life, this book will help point you in that right direction.
