Give a goat and two chickens. Goats nourish hungry children and families with healthy milk, cheese, and yogurt. Chickens provide fresh eggs that are rich in protein and nutrients, and extra eggs and chicks can be sold to pay for basics.

A dairy goat can give up to 16 cups of milk a day. Goat milk is easier to digest than cow’s milk and is an excellent source of calcium, protein, and other essential nutrients that growing children need. Goats are practical animals — flourishing in harsh climates while producing valuable manure to fertilize crops and vegetable gardens.

Chickens are equally easy to raise, and will naturally multiply to impact generations of children. Each family that receives chickens is asked to give back hatched chicks to help another family in need. Chicks require little money, space, or food to thrive and grow — making them an ideal business venture for a single mom or vulnerable family.

What’s more, your gift will help multiple families, like 10-year-old Teopista and her aunt Restetuta in Uganda. “When the goats give birth again, we will sell off some of the younger [goats],” says Restetuta. “We will use the money to buy Teopista a school uniform, books, and beddings. We can also buy food with some of the money. I thank World Vision so much for all the help they have given us … we know that those goats will be of benefit to us in future.”

Potatoes carrots and other root vegetables are great for Winter mashes

Potatoes. I love them … in curries, fried in the French style, roasted. Hash browned, preferably cooked in bacon fat or poached in soups and stews. They’re at their best mashed. And by mashed, I mean yellow potatoes poached in their skins until tender, peeled while warm and pushed through a ricer then mixed with butter, salt, pepper and sour cream.
