Donate Your Unwanted Halloween Candy

I hope you all had a safe and fun Halloween! Whether you didn't get as many trick-or-treaters as you expected, your kids have left you with their least favorites, or you just don't want it around for you to eat, you probably have some candy you want to get rid of after Halloween. That candy doesnt have to end up in a landfill OR in your belly!

There are a few great organizations that will accept your unwanted Halloween candy.

  • The Halloween Candy Buy Back is a partnership between Operation Gratitude and dental care providers around the country. Donors can bring candy to any participating dentist's office in exchange for various oral hygeine products and services. The candy (often along with dental care products from the dentists) is then distributed to U.S. troops overseas via care packages.
  • Operation Shoebox is another organization that sends care packages to troops overseas.
  • You might also consider donating to your local food bank.
  • A local Ronald McDonald House should also accept the candy.
