The picture above is one of the very first posts that I shared way back on Publix Penny Pincher four years ago, showing my friend Lana’s daughters Julia and Jordan packing up their Holiday Food Boxes. They’ve grown up quite a bit these last few years, but their family is still planning to pack boxes this Holiday season for those in need. If you take pictures of your family as they prepare Holiday Food Boxes over the next few weeks, please send me over your pictures because I’d love to share them here on Passionate Penny Pincher!
