Not everyone had the chance to stuff themselves silly over the Thanksgiving weekend. Many of us were lucky enough to have more food at our houses than we could possibly consume, so this would be a good week to cut back, and reach out to make sure other Idahoans have at least enough.
Volunteers with St. Vincent de Paul have conquered the enormous task of boxing up nearly two thousand Thanksgiving meals for those in need, and those families are picking up those dinners today. And there may be extras for you.
One of the repercussions of creating a huge feast is having an enormous amount of leftovers. You might be bound and determined to eat and eat until you're sick, but even then you and your family might have a little green bean casserole to spare.

There's a shopping day scheduled for later this month, and the Pop-Up Thrift shop will ultimately help the Treasure Valley homeless population.
