Carol's Beans & Rice update

I wonder if you could tell us what a typical food hamper holds. I am thinking probably basic staples. I'm also comparing it to my running shopping list. The list helps me focus and get in and out of the store fast. But I've got things on it that must be considered luxuries. Parmesan cheese, English muffins, fruit. I think having an idea of what others are getting by on, will: 1) make me more thankful for what I do have; 2) encourage me to minimize my life, including my diet.
Thank you!

Con todo respeto, Islandgirl, it's quite a long list, and at the end of Carol's busy day I'm sure it's a bit of a chore to type it all out. There is no Italian cheese or British bread. All of us are living on basics right now. Some of us might have a bit of chicken or fish once a week if we're lucky. Carol's put up lots of photos on her Facebook page and I've copied a lot of them on my own Facebook page available at the link at the bottom of this page so you can have a look at what's being bought and distributed to local families.
