What food items should not be donated to a food pantry?

While a food pantry will (probably) never come out and say it, I'm sure there are things that they do not want as donations.

From the top of my head (aside from the obvious like perishables or damaged products), these are some things I think that probably should *not* be donated:

- alcohol
- products that require special equipment to make (e.g. Senseo coffee packets)
- products with labels in foreign languages (i.e., not English)
- items that have not been in production for at least 10 years (e.g., Cracker Jack cereal or Gremlins cereal)

What other things do you think belong on that list?
