So, don’t get me wrong, I am VERY thankful for the Barrie Food Bank and their resources, but I’m starting to think they may not check the food the receive. If it’s close to the date or just soon after, that’s fine with me. But back in my May trip, I had received a big freezer bag full of dry soup. I thought AWESOME!! Until I checked the dates. They were all due in 2019. So I ended up chucking the bag immediately. Everything else seemed fine but up until today found two more items that were expired.
The chef boyarde, expired last year. Maybe it’s still good, but I doubt it.
Now the Sidekick here, I don’t necessarily blame them as there is no date on it. So I looked up the product. None sold or made since atleast 2005. Meaning this had to have gone bad anywhere from 2005-2007. (Given most dried goods last about 2 years)
So I have right now, an almost 10 year old food item that I cannot consume. 🤣 Maybe keep it for novelty? Lmao
So to anyone who goes to the food bank, PLEASE check the dates on your food, and if there isn’t one, you may have to dig a little deeper and who knows maybe be surprised like I was today.
