This time of year, a Kansas State University food safety specialist says food pantries, food banks and soup kitchens really appreciate gifts of food, money and time. But the generosity of donating food also needs to be accompanied by the gift of safety and health. Londa Nwadike, who holds dual appointments with Kansas State and the University of Missouri, urges people to think about those who will eventually receive the donated food items and to provide a variety of safe, nutritious options.
