I am in the process of finding out how to transfer a cash donation to the local food bank. At this time it is a lot safer to do that re contamination, than it is to put the physical items into their bin.
I don't really have the cash flow to donate financially right now. But I have added a bit to the little free pantry in my neighborhood. I am trying to add healthy things like fruit cups and such. They have gone quickly. The boxes of icky mac and cheese that someone else donated have been sitting there for ages. When I grocery shop next week I'll see what I can find to add.

I have on occasion, when I had something spare to donate. I have been in a situation where I have needed food grants a few times, myself, so know what it is like to not have the privilege of being able to afford essential groceries all the time.
I ran a food bank for ten years. We continue to donate time, money, and food.
