Leftover food

We are just about to wrap up or ring road trip. We definitely bought too much at Costco and have a lot of leftover non-perishable sealed food. I can't seem to find any info regarding a food bank in Reykjavik. Anyone know where we can donate or drop off these items?

None that I know off. There are no food banks in Iceland as people needing get a store (bónus) gift card to buy what they need. One place worth checking out is the Laugardalur Campsite as they might know a bit more or offer a "free for all" shelf somewhere.

You could try Red Cross Iceland - https://www.raudikrossinn.is/english/

Or maybe you'd like to support the ICE-SAR, the Rescue Services of Iceland. I guess they eat food :) icelandreview.com/stuff/ask-ir/2013/08/15/ho… - there's some info there, both the address, etc. They're near the city center.

Most hostels have a free food shelf, so if there is one nearby, maybe just ask. I am sure some budget visitor will appreciate it.
