The Gift of Giving

It's suddenly that time of year again. Magazines and web sites are loaded with every kind of gift guide imaginable and your Inbox is flooded with holiday deals from all of your favorite stores. If it all starts to feel too excessive, maybe it's time to balance it out with some altruistic giving. Food & Wine has a great list of charities supported by some of America's best chefs, including Alice Waters' Edible School Yard Project (pictured above) and Rick Bayless' Frontera Farmer Foundation, which supports small local growers in the Chicago area. These charitable gestures also make great gifts for those family and friends who seemingly have everything and are impossible to buy for. — Cerentha Harris
