It's hard to believe that the holiday season is already upon us. Despite the mall stampedes, fruitcake overload, never-ending traffic jams and hideous reindeer sweaters, I'm looking forward to spending the holiday's with my family. I can almost taste my mother's mince pie and am ready to play backyard soccer and touch football with my daughters and my nieces and nephews.
As you know, this is also a time to give back to those less fortunate. One popular way to do your part is by donating to canned food drives put on by organizations like Food and Friends and Second Harvest Food Bank . There's just one catch: if you plan to donate fish this year, consider donating canned wild salmon, instead of tuna. Salmon is not only lower in mercury but it is also higher in omega-3 fatty acids, so it's a healthier choice for mothers and children who may receive your donation.
