Tis the season

To donate to worthy organizations

December 21, 2010

OK, so you’ve got just a few days of holiday shopping left. In the past, we’ve created gift lists featuring kitchen tools both fancy and not, as well as the ever-popular chocolate treats. But what really makes us happy is spending money on food-related causes. (And no, your stomach doesn’t count.)

We’re talking organizations like the American Farmland Trust, or projects like "A Thousand Gardens in Africa," a Slow Food Terra Madre campaign to plant edible gardens across the continent.

If you’d still rather give an object than cold hard cash, troll through the New York Times’ roundup of do-gooder edibles, including crackers, fruitcake, sparkling wine, ham, and, of course, chocolate.
