Archimedes, will food pantries accept open bags of candy?

We didn't buy very much but wanted to have a selection, so we have two partial bags sitting in the Hallowe'en candy basket. I usually send it to my husband's office or give it to one of my brothers who needs to gain weight but am open to other options.

Any poor kid can go trick-or-treating and get loads of candy. I work for a children's hospital that relies on donations of candy for their movie nights. These kids are very sick and don't have the luxury of going trick-or-treating. Please consider donating your left over candy to your local children's hospital.

My mom's dentist is doing that. He'll pay the kids $1.00 per pound and give them free toothbrushes, coloring books, those tablets that color your teeth where you didn't brush well, and so on, and then he'll send the candy and more toothbrushes to troops stationed overseas.

Your local blood bank might also be able to use some.

I also read on a Spark blog that some dentist offices will pay your kids for their candy, then they send it to the troops.

Great ideas.. I didn't buy much and my husband took most it to his office this morning so it wouldn't get eaten at home... but I'll keep my eyes open for more.

great idea!


or if it's not something that's in Halloween wrapping, add it to Angel Tree gifts as a stocking stuffer.

Hey, all !!

Now that Halloween is over, I know many member may feel tempted by all those left over goodies or the booty brought home by their kids from a night of trick or treating. I know many members might tell you to throw out the left overs so that you aren't tempted to over eat.

Well, I have a better option for all those left overs, consider donating it to your local food pantry. There are many families in financial trouble (or those effected by Hurricane Sandy) who weren't able to buy bags and bags of candy, that treat would be appreciated.

So, why not donate the left overs instead of throwing them out ?
