Do you buy items for a local food pantry? You should know that there are many things that Food Stamp recipients cannot purchase under the governmental program - things they still need in order to care for their families.
You should know that the following are excluded:
Non-food items. This list is obviously expansive and includes personal hygiene products, home products, cleaning products, toys, and basically anything that cannot be consumed as food.
So, when you are at the store picking up a few things for yourself and for the local food pantry, don't forget the toilet paper, feminine products, soap, and anything else that cannot be eaten but you consider necessary household products.
Go and be Christ's hands and feet!
