I'd suggest food banks (I don't know what they accept) but a lot of all that is not such a benefit. Still, if you haven't been able to buy any candy for a bit or a long time, one piece of candy can be a treat.
Churches? I'm an atheist but used to be a catholic about fifty years ago. St. Vincent de Paul people are o.k. by me, far as I know. (I don't know anything about the system policies.)
Maybe it's time for what was going on with books for a while, that you left some somewhere.
I suppose people would think the candy was doctored.
