All items to be donated must be:
· In their original, unopened packages
· Within the expiration date on the package
· In plastic jars or containers, not glass
The glass bit does pose a concern, since you wouldn't then be able to donate perfectly good, unopened jars of Emeril Lagasse's pasta sauce. Still, looking in our fridge pictured above, we'd be able to donate the dozen eggs, the boxed soup, the bag of salad and the one unopened package of soba noodles. This goes a long way towards preparing for a trip just as it does much to benefit a few hungry New Yorkers.
Of course there's the airplane-size bottles of booze too, but we'll just have to save those for our return.
