Ways to Use That Leftover Halloween Candy

1. Donate to troops or first responders

You can sign up as an individual, group, or business and send your candy to Operation Gratitude. Want something closer to home? A group called Soldiers’ Angels lets you search by zip code to find a location near you to donate.

2. Support a good cause 

Many charities take candy, not just after Halloween but after Valentine’s and Easter too. Call your local food pantry, homeless shelter, or nursing home to see if they would like a donation of unopened Halloween candy.

3. Find a candy buy-back program near you

There are businesses — it seems to most often be dentists —that have a candy buy-back offer post-Halloween.
