Can you breakdown what you got for your money?

Thanks

Nice stack of food! :) The one in Toronto has been very useful to us and we did similar as you. They also have incorporated a smaller "grocery store" like section where you can buy produce, daily essentials, etc.

They do here also but its a resource for the food bank so as a person who can shop on the long term side means my immediate is taken care of. So I dont enter there , its their sand box so they make the rules.

Always been curious about the LDS canneries. Any awkward moments as a non LDS shopper?

if you look here you can purchase some items in #10 cans that are rodent proof
How does this work Jimbo? Do they have a mail order service?
None you improvise, one (or more) is luxury.

Not the one in Toronto. Ive been there several times over the years and they take about 20 seconds to let you know who they are and why they are doing it..and thats it. They don't preach, try to convert or even engage you unless you ask questions. Every time I've gone its been a semi retired or retired couple who are volunteering from the states who come up to help out. If anything we all horse around and bitch about mundane daily things. :D I guess what I'm trying to say is...they are normal people like everyone else..they just don't drink or swear (sort of... ;) )
