Spilling Holiday Tea on Good Eats Affordable DIY charitable donation ideas…

holiday-treeFoodies, Food Lovers and any one across the globe who enjoys creating unique holiday meals have reached that pivotal menu planning moment. This is also a time of the year that we tend to think more of the less fortunate individuals, such as children, who go about their daily lives making do with whatever in the foster care system. Get started by creating awesome flyer invites to post on your local church or community center bulletin board. You can also post your event information on your favorite social media sites. Now you’re ready to gather up a few neighbors who would be willing to donate a few food items along with their time on a brisk Saturday morning, perk up a big pot of coffee, and enjoy the fellowship of “Good Eating for Charity”. ~bon appetit~

Set your table with holiday wrapping paper, tiny jingle bells and about six gold or silver spray painted pine cones. Place the below listed food items decoratively on your table, including small price signage for your customers.

  • Omelet Station with all the fixings (offer vegan omelet choices)
  • Fruit station with several varieties (offer a fruit salad with yogurt topping)
  • Muffin station with several flavors (offer a holiday pumpkin cream cheese)

Set your serving table with lots of foil tinsel, choose holiday colors of red gold and silver, and string Christmas garland around the outer perimeter of the table. Lastly, place your crockpots diagonally on the serving table, with ladles for scooping. Don’t forget your small price signage for your customers.

  • Chili with turkey
  • Vegan vegetable chili
  • White bean chili
  • Southwestern spicy chili
  • Offer side items (sour cream, cheese, onion, jalapeno, cracker and cornbread variations)

These are just a few of my simple, affordable, fun Christmas Charity ideas. Everyone one will be more than happy to donate and make a purchase to benefit children in your local foster care system. Lastly, the only thing left is to contact the appropriate agency who handles holiday gift giving. Who knows…you may even get to shop for the toys yourself. ~Dakota~
