Pantry Pigs

El Paso, Texas (KTSM) - The local food pantry makes sure none of your donated food goes to waste, even the items the public can't eat. 

At the El Pasonas Fighting Hunger Food Bank, sorting through the all food donated, is a beast of a job.  This year alone volunteers inspected over 1 million pounds food. They have to examine every bag, box, and can to check if the food you donate, meets the requirements to go to people in need. 

100 thousand pounds of food didn't pass inspection and couldn't be fed to people.  Instead of sending all that food to the landfill, the food bank sends its somewhere else so the food you donate doesn't go to waste.
