Bart & The Community

The Holiday season is upon us. This means people will be hosting parties, gifts will be exchanged, and celebrations will begin!

This means we will also be asked:
What can I bring to the party?
What do you want from Santa?

Most people will reply with,
“Oh, just bring yourself to the party! We have everything covered!”
OR
“Oh, I don’t need anything from Santa – just time together!”

These responses have almost become automatic. However, they do not allow us to live out the full potential of the holiday spirit. The ironic part of these responses is that I know I have given them more times than I can count personally, however, I hate when people give me the same answer. What if there was another option?

Yes, you might have everything you need for the party. BUT you could use this as an opportunity to ask each guest to bring a non-perishable item which can be donated to FeedMore. Then later in the party you can make a game out of what dishes could be created from the items which were brought. This allows you to celebrate while giving back.

The same is true for the question - what do you want from Santa? Rather than leaving your present up to risk, you could ask for your loved ones to give you food which can be donated.
Not sure which foods to ask for? How about:
12 Jars of Peanut Butter
11 Cans of Tuna
10 bags of Rice
9 cans of vegetables
8 tubes of toothpaste
7 bottles of body wash
6 cans of Spam
5 Jars of Fruit
4 Bags of Beans
3 boxes of Mac and Cheese
2 Cans of Nuts
