I've received some gifts I can't use for Chuseok. What should I do?

If the food packages are unopened and non-perishable, like Spam, you can sometimes take them to your local market/supermarket and exchange them.

You can also bring them to a local church and give them as a gift for the elderly or those in need. Most churches operate such programs. Or you can contact one of the religious institutions that hold English services (see http://www.korea4expats.com/article-Worship--in-Seoul.html or for outside Seoul, http://www.korea4expats.com/article-Worship---Outside-Seoul.html). You will, most likely, have to deliver the gift yourself.

If you've noticed an orphanage or community center or drop-in center in your neighbourhood, that's another option.

You may also receive fresh products, fruit/vegetable, meat/fish, seafood, etc. in greater quantities than you can possibly consume. Giving to a church or charitable institution is a great option here as well. Or you can share your bounty with your neighbours, or property owner, etc. I've held parties in the past and shared some of it with friends and neighbours - works expecially well when Chuseok comes just before Canadian Thanksgiving.
