Last week as I entered the Salvation Army Food Bank I received some exciting news regarding a certain delicacy of the culinary world. We received real butter. . .. 1,000 pounds of it! That's over 450 kilograms of the rich, creamy, clog-your-arteries spread that we all love!
This butter was destined for the dump in a local supermarket until our food bank supervisor got wind of the news and made plans to rescue it. Things like butter, cream and yogurt are a rarity for us at the food bank, so this was a really big deal. Due to mislabeling of the product, apparently this perfectly good butter
was going to be destroyed, left to rot away in a rubbish heap somewhere, never to be consumed again. How sad. How wasteful. Thankfully we were able to give it a good home in our freezers and can now bless clients that come to receive food parcels with this dairy delight.
Who knew one could get so excited about butter!
