Item 117 – Can Opener Key Donation

If there’s a key, then there must also be a lock: too many food banks get donations of canned goods, but that presumes that people experiencing homelessness have access to can openers. Help unlock access to food for people in need: donate a manual can opener decorated as a beautiful “key” along with some non-perishable food, if you CAN.

Item 58 – #RandomActs4Holli

The GISH and Random Acts communities just lost one of our own to cancer: Holli was a dear friend, Gisher, and volunteer. She was also a longtime champion for food equity, so we’re taking up the mantle: Sign up to volunteer or make a donation to , the food bank where Holli devoted her time, or your local food bank or a food equity program while wearing a crown of holly, real or manufactured. Post a photo of you in your crown with proof of your donation on social media tagging @randomactsorg, #GISH, and #RandomActs4Holli.

Item 172 – GISHY Cooking

(UP TO 30 SECONDS) As you may know, this year my family unveiled “The Adventurous Eaters Club Cookbook” to help teach people to be curious, healthy eaters — and to help families in disadvantaged situations to get access to healthy food. (100% of the profits from the book go to charities.) But the most important recipe in the book is the recipe for adventure. Create a 30-second video in the style of Buzzfeed “Tasty” cooking videos showing the most adventurous, irreverent recipe you can come up with using AT LEAST 1 food you have never tried before and feed it to a quarantine compadre (or if you’re alone, eat it yourself). End it with a title card that says “GISHY.” Our favorite adventurous cooking videos will win a free copy of “The Adventurous Eaters Club Cookbook”!
