As you gear up for your own feast, help others who are struggling to fill their pantries each day. Next time you’re at the grocery store, use the food bank wish list from Feeding America to fill your cart with a few non-perishable items for others, and thanks will surely come your way.1. ApplesaucePlastic jars of unsweetened applesauce provide a quick snack, fiber and vitamin C. Applesauce also keeps well on food bank shelves.2. Canned BeansLoaded with protein and fiber, canned beans provide an excellent, nutritious way to fill a hungry tummy. Opt for the low-sodium varieties whenever possible.3. Canned ChickenIt’s simple to toss this non-perishable item into soups and casseroles or add it to a sandwich or cracker. Its versatility and high protein content make it a popular item at food banks.4. Canned Fish (Tuna and Salmon)Canned fish has vitamins, omega-3 fatty acids and protein, and it makes for a quick and easy meal. Food banks are most in need of canned tuna and salmon.5. Canned Meat (SPAM and Ham)Grab some SPAM or canned ham and drop it into a food donation bin. It’s shelf-stable, doesn’t require much prep or equipment to eat, and delivers a quick hit of protein to keep individuals feeling full for longer.6. Canned VegetablesColorful, nutrient-dense and fiber-rich vegetables are always in high demand, and canned varieties last the longest on a food bank’s shelves. Look for low-sodium options. Food banks often hand out recipes using the items they have. Consider including this recipe for a hearty casserole made with canned veggies along with your donation for the food pantry to share.7. Cooking Oils (Olive and Canola)Food banks rely heavily on these essential and pricier items being donated. Canola and olive oils are the best choices because of their monounsaturated fats and mild flavor. Our guide to cooking oils can help make sure you’re buying the healthiest options.8. CrackersPerfect as a snack or as a base for canned meats, crackers are shelf-stable and portable, making them ideal for snacks and lunches. Whole grain crackers are the best bet.9. Dried Herbs and SpicesIt’s hard to cook a tasty meal without herbs and spices, so drop some in your cart to donate. Stick to the basics, like oregano, basil, cumin, pepper, rosemary, thyme and cinnamon.10. Fruit (Canned or Dried)Fruit, whether dried, canned or in plastic cups, makes excellent snacks for kids and adults and provide some nutrition and fiber. Choose those that are packed in water or fruit juice rather than sugary syrups.11. Granola BarsFood banks are always in need of quick and easy items that families can toss into lunches or eat on the go, and granola bars are just the thing. Look for ones with less sugar made with oats or other whole grains.12. Instant Mashed PotatoesInstant potatoes last longer and require minimal tools and ingredients to whip up. They’re also a favorite of every age group, making them a popular item. Pass on this recipe for instant potatoes jazzed up with garlic powder for the food bank to share with its visitors (and send along some garlic powder too).13. Meals in a BoxAn entire meal that’s shelf-stable and in one package—dinner doesn’t get easier than that, which is plus for those without stocked kitchens. Look for pasta, rice and soup kits, especially those that are lower in sodium and higher in fiber and protein.14. NutsA handful of nuts provides protein and nutrients in a hurry and is perfect for snacks and lunches. Food banks have a hard time finding them due to their higher price, so donations are essential. Opt for unsalted varieties when possible.15. PastaThis is a food bank staple since it’s easy to turn into a meal. Whole grain varieties offer more fiber and nutrition than white pasta.16. Peanut ButterKids and adults like it, and it’s high in protein, making peanut butter one of the most popular items at food banks. Look for varieties that are lower in sugar, and check out our editors’ list of the best tasting picks.17. RiceIt’s filling, versatile and easy to prepare and store. Skip the white stuff and donate brown rice when possible, because it provides more fiber. Quinoa is also a great item to donate.18. Shelf-stable and Powdered MilkBecause no fridge is required to keep this milk fresh, it’s accessible for everyone. Plus, it provides much-needed calcium and protein.19. Soup, Stew and ChiliThese canned or packaged items acts as a warm and filling lunch or dinner and often come complete with protein (meat) and veggies. If possible, try to find reduced sodium options.20. Whole Grain CerealHere’s another popular item with all ages, since whole grain cereal makes a healthy breakfast or snack. Select varieties that are low in sugar and high in fiber.Photo: Shutterstock / mangostockAnd three to skip? When purchasing items for a food bank, try to avoid:junk fooditems with glass or cellophane packaging, which can be broken in transitthings that need can openers or special equipment (pop-top cans–whether for veggies, meat or fruit–are a plus)Photo: Shutterstock / michelmondNow all that’s left to do is shop, donate and feel good knowing you’ve helped stock a home with nutritious and filling groceries.

In the last decades, this part of the city has faced a process of gentrification and intense transformation of its uses, turning a purely residential neighborhood into a cultural and commercial one, while maintaining its low density. This changing process, strongly linked to the field of design, art and gastronomy, has modified the ways of occupying public space becoming a tourist and cosmopolitan area of the city.Save this picture!PlansRecommended ProductsDoorsAir-LuxPivoting DoorDoorspanoramah!®ah!

Our work was not based on extending the existing area but rather on identifying and redefining connections between existing spaces through the incorporation of a new staircase in order to capture light and to frame the landscape.Save this picture!© Javier Agustín RojasThe house is organized in 3 levels, with outdoor spaces of different scales: the access courtyard as an expansion of the living room in the ground floor, an intimate terrace linked to the bedroom in the first floor and the largest terrace as an outdoor living room in the second one.Save this picture!DrawingsThe new volume of the staircase rests on a neighboring high-rise median, reducing its impact towards the patio and defining the new envelope of the house.Save this picture!© Javier Agustín RojasThe project on the envelope allowed us to re-think the dialectic between view and facade, by organizing a series of spans of different but proportional sizes which solve in each case the problems of lighting, ventilation and physical or visual connection between inside and outside. Despite the small surface, the arrangement of the openings allows deep perspectives and a framed perception of the outside from all its insides.Save this picture!© Javier Agustín RojasWe worked with a very limited range of materials, emphasizing the continuity of the white walls in order to increase the reflection effect of natural light.

Wexners give $3M to HKS’s Center for Public Leadership

first_imgLeslie and Abigail Wexner, founding and sustaining donors of the Center for Public Leadership (CPL) at Harvard’s Kennedy School, announced today an additional gift of $3 million to the center. Their gift, an extension of the couple’s longtime commitment to inspiring, preparing, and connecting tomorrow’s global leaders, brings the Wexners’ total commitment to the center and HKS to more than $42 million.Les Wexner built Limited Brands and now serves as chairman and CEO. He and his wife, Abigail, an attorney, are among the nation’s leading philanthropists. Les Wexner’s alma mater, The Ohio State University, recently named its entire medical complex in his honor. Both Wexners are deeply engaged in numerous community activities in their hometown of Columbus, Ohio. In addition, they serve as cochairs of The Wexner Foundation, which promotes the vitality of Jewish communities throughout North America and is highly supportive of Israel.The Wexners’ engagement with the Kennedy School began in 1989, when the foundation established the Wexner Israel Fellowship Program. This initiative has enabled more than 200 Israeli public leaders to come to the Kennedy School in pursuit of a midcareer master’s degree.In August 2000, a gift from the Wexners launched the Center for Public Leadership, reflecting a longtime interest in leadership and history by Les Wexner. Since then, their ongoing counsel and generosity, underwriting core operating expenses, have enabled the center to become recognized as one of the top university-based leadership institutes in North America. CPL serves a growing number of young, aspiring leaders at the Kennedy School and beyond through scholarships, workshops, field trips, and conversations with visiting leaders.
