At this time of year, some people may feel panicky about how they're going to get rid of unwanted chametz before Pesach.
Last year and already this year, I'm seeing a lot of food being dumped in our local park and next to public waste bins. This is illegal and is a waste of food. It does no good to local song-birds but feeds rats. I've had to call the vet several times when my dog found food in the park and ate it: some "people food" is poisonous to dogs.
Please may I remind readers that JGIFT will take non-perishable food which is in sealed packaging and within its "use-by" date. Colindale Foodbank are happy to accept bread if it isn't stale.
With thanks and best wishes
