Wanted...Egg Cartons and Canned Pasta

The food bank is desperate for egg cartons.  We have a source for eggs who is willing to continue to supply us; however we have no cartons in which to package them.  We can not get more eggs until we return his empty boxes and flats so time is of the essence.

We are also completely out of canned pasta.  If you have some in your pantry or go shopping over the weekend, please share with us if you can.
