Food For Thought: Shipping Unused Halloween Candy to Troops

This Friday’s Food For Thought is geared towards Halloween.

I saw this Tweet by @veteransairlift:

Soldiers’ Angels is shipping donated, unused Halloween candy to troops overseas. There are two address which to mail your unused Halloween candy to and they are:

If you live eastof the Mississippi, please ship your halloween candy to:
Soldiers’ Angels 112 Greenhill Road
Ramseur NC 27316
(Dropoff avail. M-F, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.)

If you live west of the Mississippi, please ship your halloween candy to:
Soldiers’ Angels
914 Tourmaline Dr
Newbury Park, CA 91320

In Baltimore there is a dentist buying Halloween candy from kids, and mailing it to troops overseas as party of a national program called Halloween Candy Buy Back. I saw that story on BaltimoreSun.com, and I am proud of this story because I am a Baltimore-native and proud of my city.

What do you call think of mailing your unused Halloween candy to the troops?

It’s something to think about if you have a child with allergies who cannot eat half their Halloween loot.
