So mail trucks full of non-perishable food would come in and we'd have to sort it. Either "hard" cans/molded plasic or "soft" for just about everything else. People donate some really crazy things. The sheer amount of food we moved was amazing though. They had cardboard boxes on pallettes that were about six feet cubed and I think we probably filled up 25 of those. Each one of those weighing just about a ton. That's a serious amount of food!
The best item donated was this can of Campbell's Minestrone soup. The label looked a little dated so I took a closer look at the can and it had an expiration date of 1993!!! It's 2003! That's ten years over its expiration date. Wow!
