Throw out: expired emergency foods

You did a good thing when you bought a closet full of canned goods and bottled water a decade ago, in case an earthquake or some other natural disaster or the apocalypse meant access to fresh food became impossible. The problem is, that was a very long time ago, and now, many of those foods may have expired. It’s worth checking and throwing out the stuff that’s gone bad. Replace it with new canned goods. If you have canned goods that will soon go bad, that you don’t believe you’ll use in time, donate them to a soup kitchen or church that has a food pantry program with the explanation that these must be used sooner rather than later.
