The Farm-to-Fork Gift Guide: Do Good Edition

Last year’s guide to gifts that give back was the first gift guide I’d ever published here, and I enjoyed it so much that when I decided to do a series of gift guides this year I knew at least one of them would need to focus on gifts that do good. And since today is ‘Giving Tuesday’ I wouldn’t imagine a better day to post it. So, without further ado, my top five picks for charitable and philanthropic holiday gifts this year:

Stella The Goat steals the first spot on this list. A partnership between two of my favorite organizations, Heifer International and the ONE Campaign, you can buy a Stella the Goat for a family in Africa this holiday season and give your family and friends an adorable card to let them know you’ve contributed to a worthy cause on their behalf.

If domestic giving is more your speed however, The Gift of Food Feeding America also has a gift catalog this holiday season. You can give in denominations that represent a wide variety of food items right here in the U.S.; from apples to peanut butter.

Of course, not everyone wants to pass out cards. For those who’d rather give a tangible gift that just so happens to give back, Gallo Wines’ Every Cork Counts Program is a fun spin. Gallo is donating $5 to Meals on Wheels for every cork that’s mailed back to them between now and the new year. Meals on Wheels feeds seniors who are housebound, bringing warm meals to their doorstep.

Theo Congo Line Chocolate bars are not only food, proceeds benefit farmers in the Congo where conflict has reduced the amount of arable land in production and put farmers out of work. Be sure to check out their Congo Infographic for more info.

And last, but not least, FEED is, of course, an oldie but goodie. I’m a fan of their bags, but this candle caught my eye when I went shopping this year. Check out their own holiday gift list for more ideas.

Happy Holiday Hunting!
