March’s Monthly Challenges

Mon 03 Mar 2014

Story by Sarah Curl

With Food Revolution Day getting closer, we want to make sure you are shouting about our annual day of action to anyone who will listen! We’ve started sharing marketing materials with our Ambassadors to kick start change in communities across the world.

Jump into this month’s challenges by sharing Food Revolution Day with your community, creating your own recipe using 5 ingredients or less and participating in Pancake Day during the first week of March.

March’s Challenge #1

Food Revolution Day is fast approaching (May 16th) and we want to include a few ideas on how to spread awareness about the big day. Here are a few ways to get your community involved:
• Tell 5 people about Food Revolution Day
• Get a friend or family to host or attend a FRD event
• Reach out to your local press including local bloggers, newspapers, and radio stations to get them on board with FRD

March’s Challenge #2

Create your own recipe using only 5 ingredients with local and seasonal produce. Here at the Food Revolution we love real, fresh and local food. And we love it even more when it is simple to prepare!

Do you have a go-to meal that you make with 5 ingredients or less? Share your recipes and photos with us so we can learn from you!

March’s Challenge #3

March 4th is Pancake Day and we want to know what toppings you will be adding to your pancakes on the special day! Share your pancake photos during the first week of March and don’t forget to include your favorite toppings.

What are Monthly Challenges?

Every month, there will be different challenges that inspire Food Revolutionaries to engage with their communities. They are designed to make deeper connections with the thought leaders in the real food industry and connect with family and friends through fresh food.

At the beginning of every month, the challenges will be announced through a blog post, email, Facebook and Twitter. The idea is to complete as many challenges as you can. As you complete the challenges, let us know how they went. We want to hear your stories, see your pictures and be able to show your successes through our various social media platforms. So get out there, have fun and make sure you share your story with us – we could be highlighting what you’ve been doing to the world!

Do you have suggestions for next month’s challenges?
