Campo Viejo, the fastest-growing winery in the Rioja region of Northern Spain, wants your favorite family-friendly recipe – and for every recipe, the winery will donate $100 to help feed the hungry.
Though many people may think vegan food isn’t gourmet, you can prove them wrong while also helping Family-to-Family, a US hunger relief organization. Campo Viejo, the fastest-growing winery in the Rioja region of Northern Spain, wants your favorite family-friendly recipe – and for every recipe, the winery will donate $100 to help feed the hungry.

Sharing food brings people together

Whether it’s a mid-afternoon cup of coffee and slice of warm cake or a multi-course meal, sitting down to dine with family and friends makes every meal more meaningful. Eating together gives us the chance to share more than food; “breaking bread” together gives us the chance to also share conversation, laughter, and joy.

Not all families have the luxury of sitting down to a great meal

Appreciate your daily meals with loved ones, because not all families have the opportunity to experience meaningful meals together. According to the USDA, hunger is a growing problem in the US, with 17.4 million households classified as having low or very low food security. To raise hunger awareness and allow us to extend our hospitality to hungry families in the US, Campo Viejo is challenging the nation’s food enthusiasts to submit their favorite recipes.

Every recipe gives hope to the hungry

In addition to pairing well with Campo Viejo’s wines, the recipes should represent dishes that are shared and enjoyed by family and friends and that bind people together when sharing a meal at the table. For every recipe received, Campo Viejo will donate $100 to Family-to-Family, continuing the generosity of joy that is the basis of the most convivial occasions in life. While these recipes will financially assist Family-to-Family, they will also be added to Campo Viejo’s recipe bank and will serve as the cornerstone of communication efforts for the hunger relief organization.

Enter your best vegan recipe

From now until June 26, 2011 (11:59:59 p.m.), participants can submit recipes by emailing them to CampoViejo@ttc-pr.com. For every recipe received, Campo Viejo will donate $100 to Family-to-Family. Limit three (3) recipes per person. Recipes should pair well with the wines in Campo Viejo’s portfolio, while also representing dishes that are meant for sharing and for bringing people together at the dinner table.
