Everyone Wins with Canadian Chicken [Contest + Chicken Recipe Roundup]
Unless you’ve been a vegetarian or vegan for majority of your days, you know how life-saving a simple, lowly chicken breast can be after a long day. The ultimate in versatile staples - it’s healthy, satisfying, and simply delicious.
It’s no surprise that the Chicken Farmers of Canada agree and are using this simple staple to try and wipe out hunger in our country. Often, we forget that the face of hunger isn’t just visible in our homeless and middle-aged residents, but over 40% of the people who use food banks in Canada are children. Now you have a chance to help CFC make a difference in their lives.
The Everyone Wins With Canadian Chicken campaign wants to get all Members of Parliament to submit their favourite chicken breast sandwich recipe for a chance to win!
What’s in it for them?
- First Prize - $10,000 donation to your city’s food bank
- Second Prize - $5,000 donation to your city’s food bank
- Third Prize - $2,500 donation to your city’s food bank
The winning recipe will also be served to over 10,000 people at the 20th Annual Great Canadian Chicken BBQ in Ottawa on Canada Day.
Chicken Farmers of Canada, proud National sponsor of Canada Day in the Capital for our 20th year and host of the annual Great Canadian Chicken BBQ, is calling on all Members of Parliament to enter the recipe contest. Once you enter, CFC will email you an online badge that you can use to let your constituents know that you have participated and support eradicating hunger in your riding!
Find your Member of Parliament, so you can tweet or email them and ask for support in your city, here!
