We’re embarking on the holiday season which means there are a lot of requests for donations and helping those who are less fortunate.

It’s in that spirit that I want to highlight a few organizations that are doing good things and are related to food.  If you know of an organization I should highlight, let me know! 

Please make sure to donate either your time and/or money this year! 

  • Capital Area Food Bank — For $15, you can pay for Thanksgiving food basket for a “seasoned member of the community” (meaning a senior citizen).   You can also volunteer — check it out
  • Miriam’s Kitchen — They’re looking for personal item donations, volunteer time, and financial contributions. 
  • Homeless Walkathon — Occurring on November 17th in DC, Atlanta, Boston, Charlotte, Dallas, Denver, LA, and Seattle, it’s a good cause that cost only $25 to participate.   Grab some friends and walk for the homeless!  I am!
  • America’s Second Harvest — I read an amazing story in the Wall Street Journal a year or so ago about their backpack program and completely fell in love with what they’re doing.   I think it’s great!
  • Answer questions, feed the hungry — By taking a few minutes out of your day, you can feed the hungry.
