 h1. Dear readers,
 At Culinate we're distressed by the news of increasing numbers of Americans who too often go hungry. We've decided to help by [/articles/ourtable/FoodBankDonation?utmsource=NL20091202&utmmedium=email&utmcontent=Foodbankdonation&utmcampaign=BooksforFood "donating 100 percent"] of our December commissions from Amazon and Powell Book's to Feeding America, a nonprofit organization that dispenses food aid across the country.

 So, any holiday purchase — books, chef's knives, Cuisinarts, bath towels, socks, Crocs, Kindles, TVs, whatever! — that you make through this link to Amazon or this  link to Powell's will help feed someone.

 In the coming days, we'll be posting gift ideas, but in the meantime, here are some book suggestions to get you started. 

 Please consider shopping Amazon or Powell's from Culinate this holiday season. Every little bit helps — and we thank you.
 Kim Carlson
 Editorial Director

 P.S. More gifting: Tomorrow on Table Talk, Kim O'Donnel will be discussing [/columns/tabletalk/tabletalkdecember3?utmsource=NL20091202&utmmedium=email&utmcontent=TTDec3&utmcampaign=BooksforFood "edible and readable gifts"] (10 a.m. PT, 1 p.m. ET). Come join the discussion!
