Host a Cookie Swap
Invite family and friends to bring a few dozen of their favorite holiday cookies to swap with each other.
Then wrap up your cookies for donation and give them to a local food pantry, emergency shelter, senior center, lunch program, or other community agency.
Be sure to check first that they accept food donations, and ask when they would like delivery.
