Happy Thanksgiving and leftovers

Slackershot: Turkey dayAs we celebrate Thanksgiving this year, please consider this super-easy leftovers tip: whatever you don’t need, whatever’s extra, please donate to a local food pantry, soup kitchen, or homeless shelter. Even just an extra can of cranberry sauce or can of coffee makes a difference, and it’s so easy to do.

Don’t know where the nearest one is? Use this Google Maps query. Go to maps.google.com and type:

food pantry near your town, your state / zip code

Example:

food pantry near 02169
food pantry near Quincy, MA

You might want to call ahead and ask if they accept actual leftovers; some pantries require food to be unopened for safety.
