Armed with many of these foods, and perhaps a cookbook like "Good and Cheap: Eating Healthy on $4 a Day," which was developed to show SNAP recipients how to cook with inexpensive staples, those who rely on food banks can create healthy, filling meals. Additional tips:
Canned goods with pop-top lids are better than canned goods that require a can opener
Avoid foods packaged in glass.
Do not donate foods that are past the expiration date.
