the can can sale

You guys know I'm a blogger for ShopRite's Potluck blog, yes? Well this will be my first time experiencing the craziness of the famous ShopRite Can Can Sale. Apparently many of you know the Can Can sale jingle already and have fond memories of it from years past. Bring it on. So, basically, ShopRite hosts an annual mega-sale on canned goods and other non-perishables. This year, ShopRite will donate one can of food up to 50,000 cans for each fan on its official Facebook page. Soooo, all you have to do to help raise awareness for the fight against hunger, is "Like" ShopRite's FB page.

The Can Can Sale runs from Thursday, January 5 through Saturday, January 21 but you can "Like" their Facebook page anytime during the entire month of January to help ShopRite fight hunger.

If you are feeling particularly cheesy, you can become a virtual ShopRite Can Can dancer, which is both ridiculous and secretly awesome. You know those dancing elf things that people send around during the holidays? With their heads stuck on a cartoon dancing elf's body? Yes, this is the same idea. You can upload a photo at www.ShopRiteCanCan.com and giggle at it when your boss isn't around.

ps- Don't roll your eyes at the canned goods. We regularly keep a good variety of canned beans and legumes in our pantry (which, if you remember, is actually just a small bookcase in our kitchen). They make it easy and affordable to prepare healthy, whole foods recipes. I mean, I won't be running out to buy Spaghetti-Os, but chickpeas, black beans and kidney beans? Yup.

  1. I'm definitely planning to stock up on canned beans and tomatoes during the sale! I don't eat a ton of canned products, but those are key.

    I'm kind of disappointed that none of the food banks on their donation list are from the Albany area though. Hopefully next year when they have more stores up here...
