I’ve been wanting to talk to you about the “Home Made Lunch Event” since last week but life has been the usual merry-go-round, are we surprised. The challenge, of a culinary nature of course, is organized by the “Tablée des chefs”, a Quebec-based not-for-profit organization that brings together chefs and cooks with a common goal: help young people in need by teaching them how to cook healthy food for often pennies a serving.
Throughout september, Québecers can buy the “La boîte à lunch” booklet (in French only) for only $3 in all Jean-Coutu pharmacies.
Inside, you’ll find tons of back-to-school tips and advice, easy lunchbox-friendly recipes, portraits of chefs and food bloggers, etc. The booklet also includes the official Home Made Lunch Event picture frame to join in the Thursday challenge for your chance to win (last Thursday’s prize was an 8-piece set of Fuel lunchbox accessories). To join the challenge, you only need to:
• Like the Tablée des chefs’ Facebook page;
• Look for the weekly video, uploaded every Thursday, for that week’s challenge (the Sept. 12 challenge: reinvent fruit salad!);
• Photograph your lunch using the picture frame;
• Upload your photo to the Contest Section of the Facebook page.
The picture frame is also available for free on the homemadelunchevent.ca website, but for every 5 booklets sold, a youngster in need will receive a free cooking class. Which, well, is the price of your morning latte… So spare the change?
