Ten Second Tip: Extra Hurricane Supplies

What should you do with leftover food and water after a storm?

If you stocked up on water and non-perishable foods because of the hurricane but didn’t use everything, do not take the items back to the store. The store won’t be able to put them on the shelves again, and most likely it will all be trashed. Instead, donate the extra supplies to a local food pantry or organization that is collecting supplies for those who were hit hardest by the storm. You’ll make a difference, and your food and water won’t be wasted.
