gift of giving?

Every Christmas our library does this rather wonderful thing where people pay for their fines with food. It's a win win situation and it leaves everyone feeling warm and fuzzy, hopefully including the people that receive the food via the salvos. It's always interesting to see how much people bring in and what they decide to donate. Sometimes (but not always) it seems like the people with the small fines donate the most whilst others with enormous fines, well you get the idea. When it finishes we trawl through everything and box it up and Mr Salvo takes it away. It is amazing how many obscure or expired items turn up from the back of people's cupboards. Like this which I found yesterday. It really weighs 2.72kg.

Ingredients: Beef 88%, beef hearts......
