Cooking Contest: Join the tasty & healthy Charity Project

Dear members,

If you like cooking and sharing your creativity with others, this is an activity for you! You may also include your family and friends and spend some funny moments to cheer up the lockdown times.

Our well known charity Samaritans has invited us to their fund-raising activity with the purpose to finance summer activities for children from deprived families. This project wants to inspire young people to focus on living well and healthy and encourage them to use quality products when preparing wholesome-nutritious meals.

How to join the cooking contest

Eating healthy and well does not have to be so complicated. Accessibility to wholesome, nutrient-dense foods can be quite simple, it just takes a bit of imagination and searching for the right products.

  • Share your personal or family  favorite recipe (delicious, healthy and easy to prepare) with others.
  • Be creative – prepare an easy-simple recipe using products from the list below.
  • Join the contest by submitting a picture and the recipe of the meal to by 20 February. Provide your information: your name, telephone and email.
  • Donate €8 or more, as desired, and get in turn a €5 coupon from Gemoss, access to a collection of new recipes, and the chance to win a food basket from Gemoss worth €50
  • Once your application and payment is received, you will receive an access code on your telephone. This code entitles you to purchase goods in the value of €5 at Gemoss by showing it at the cash register.

Participate and inspire others by participating  in the cooking charity contest “Tasty & Healthy Mealtime”.

All proceeds will finance summer activities for children from deprived families.
