Depends on whether that particular food bank has refrigerator capacity. Some take them, some dont. The state of pa will pay farmers for their excess crops to put in food banks.. I’d like to have a farm one day and thought I’d just donate any extra but then that popped up on my Facebook for some reason. Would probably still donate but nice to know they do that.I understand the message, but when we donate food to the food banks, items like oil, boxed milk, fresh produce or meat are never on the list of acceptable items. The places we donate to would not accept them if we tried.
