The 7-week challenge will run from Friday, September 25th to Friday, November 13th. Each week you participate you’ll be entered to win a Thanksgiving dinner basket with all the ingredients for Thanksgiving dinner, sourced directly from local farms. The basket will include a farm-raised turkey, a pie, preserves, and local veggies. Fill out the Seasonal Cooking Challenge Sign Up Form to be added to the weekly mailing list to get reminders about the challenge.
How the Challenge Works
Each week will highlight a local, seasonal ingredient. Use that ingredient in a recipe and submit the Seasonal Cooking Challenge Form each week listing what you cooked. Every week the form will be due before midnight on Thursday. Each week that you submit the form, you will be entered to win the prize! We will also choose weekly winners who can pick up Wellness at Williams themed goodies from HR.
Hate broccoli or one of the other weekly ingredients? No worries! You can make 2 “wildcard” substitutions into your weekly meal using one of these seasonal ingredients.
