Writing Contest: Food for Thought

“Eating is not merely a material pleasure. Eating well gives a spectacular joy to life and contributes immensely to goodwill and happy companionship. It is of great importance to the morale.”

– Elsa Schiaparelli

“Most of us have fond memories of food from our childhood. Whether it was our mom’s homemade lasagna or a memorable chocolate birthday cake, food has a way of transporting us back to the past.”

– Homaro Cantu

READ RULES…

ENTER YOUR ESSAY…

STEP 1 – Answer Teen Survey: Click the Survey Monkey logo to the right to answer our short poll.

STEP 2 – Submit Essay:

In 500 words or less, using the blue “Submit Essay” button, write a personal narrative about your food traditions or a food memory.

Background: November begins the fall harvest, when families gather to celebrate nature’s food bounty, to express thanks and gratitude, and to practice time honored food traditions. For our November writing contest, we want your food stories.

Maybe your food story revolves around the holidays and how your family bakes together or cooks together. Maybe when you think about food memories you are transported into your grandmother’s kitchen with fresh bread baking in the oven. Possibly when you think of food, your ideas lean towards your favorite take out spot or restaurant or maybe even an ice cream truck that always visited your neighborhood. Maybe when you think of food you conjure up images of the best meal you ever ate either in your own home or out to eat.

What’s your food memory story?

Consider these thoughts when you write your essay (Don’t answer all these questions, but use them as a launching point to mine your memories for ideas):

When you think of the holidays, does food factor into your thoughts? How? Why?

Do you love to cook or are you addicted to The Food Network or cooking shows?

Do you and your family have traditions revolving around food that aren’t holiday related?

What is the best meal you ever ate? Where was it?

Do you have a favorite restaurant that either you or you and your family frequent?

Are there food “claim to fames” based on where you live (ex: Chicago Deep Dish, Philly Cheesesteak)

Do you think food brings people together?
