ORGANIZATION: Feeding America

PERFECT FOR: Gifts of food for the hungry, paired with snacks for your gift recipient

COST: $12+ along with whatever you may want to pair it with from the grocery store

WHAT YOU GET: Nothing tangible from the site itself, unless you print off a gift donation or have an honor card sent to the gift recipient

WHAT YOU GIVE: Food for the hungry in America

BOASTS: Feeding America supplies food to more than 37 million Americans each year, including 14 million children and 3 million seniors

MY PICK: Breakfast for a Child for 1 Year, paired with a box of your gift recipient’s favorite cereal (or get really creative and include a bowl, a spoon, and a little container of milk)

LEGITIMACY: Feeding America is a BBB accredited charity and a registered 501c3

MORE DETAILS: This is one of my very favorite gift ideas, especially for all you last-minute shoppers. Give online, print off a copy of the gift, and then run by the grocery store and pick up a related food item. Wrap it all up and tell your recipient that not only does s/he benefit from the instant gratification of the food item, but someone else can benefit from a long-term investment of food.
