Almost any place that’s still posting about boxes more than 30min after starting are just begging anyone to come take. Allegedly 400 boxes got thrown out from TCS last night.

400? that's insane? I sure hope they weren't thrown out! I got from there and most of the food (aside for 3 of the items can last indoors without fridge for more than just one night....

I don’t understand why the food isn’t being given to organizations like tomchei shabbos or others that help ppl. There are many ppl who can’t put food on the table and food is getting dumped??? I wish something could be set up to make this work. I get it it’s probably an interesting set of circumstances and takes manpower… at the very least it would be great if ppl could sign up to get a text when a place has extras to dump. I would totally take extra boxes but not taking more than I’m allowed.

likewise which is why I started this thread!
I would be very grateful for extra boxes but don't want to take more than I'm entitled to
If anyone hears that Bais Shaindel (or anywhere else) has a surplus and anyone can take please post so those of us that can make use of it can take advantage

I don’t qualify at all.. but life is so expensive especially when dealing with infertility treatments. Is there any point I am allowed to go take an extra box?

I’m linking one of the WhatsApp chats about where boxes are being given out. Usually has people posting when they’re giving out to anyone. Also has some people just giving out extras from their own boxes

My understanding is that if and when it is posted that the boxes are extra and anyone can take as many as they want it's open to anyone and everyone
fyi - doesn't happen at each school but just sometimes when they anticipate a larger turnout than actually comes and they can't seem to use up all boxes

(This is my understanding so if anyone has info otherwise please feel free to correct me)
