Sliced pineapple, mandarin oranges, tuna, rice, mustard,* green beans and tomato soup. That's what I dropped off today. It cost me less than $8 to buy that food. And somebody who needs help -- a kid, a retiree, a person between jobs who is spending everything on COBRA -- will get it. That's really a pretty cheap way to make myself happy.

*People forget to donate catsup and mustard! But hot dogs, burgers and sandwiches are cheap summer eats that can always use some livening up.
