    Guys, we had a local nursing home ask us if we wanted a "couple" bottles of liquid nutrition diets? We said yes - and they brought a pallet.

    I'm gonna have to just throw it all away, but figured I'd see if anyone on here uses this stuff first. I know that it's not cheap. Most of it is in date, but some has recently or is now expiring.

    Examples of what I have: Resource 2.0 - Delicious complete nutrition, Vanilla Cream - 484 calories packed in a little "Hi C" looking box.

    Jevity 1.2 Cal / ml - high protein nutrition w/ Fiber.

    Diabetisource AC - Advanced Control tube feeding for Diabetes.

    Osmalite 1 Cal /ml - tube feeding

    I know that this is a stretch, but someone may need it, so I am giving it a shot.

    if no bites here im sure a food pantry or two would love to have it. some pantry's are in the phone book or ask at your county family services for one.

    Great thought Leserz. I'm actually going to a grand opening of a food bank tomorrow. I can take the Resource there. The rest is more for specific medical conditions though.

    If you know anyone who has cattle, some ranchers use the outdated stuff to feed to sick calves.
