How would you use Oxfam’s GROW method to create a more sustainable food experience?
Our current food system is broken. The planet provides more than enough food for everyone, yet nearly 1 billion of us go to bed hungry every night. Together we can fix that. Governments and business are part of the solution, but each one of us has the power to help end hunger through the ways we grow, buy, cook, eat, and preserve our food.
Oxfam is challenging chefs, restaurateurs, farmers and food entrepreneurs of all kinds to create better food experiences using the GROW method, a new simple guide to feeding our families AND help feed the world.
The GROW method is a set of five principles for making positive food choices that change the way we grow, buy, cook, eat, and preserve our food. Those principles are:
Visit Oxfam America’s Facebook page to learn more about the details of each principle. Then tell us: How will you use the GROW method to improve a food experience? Submit your idea to transform the food system. The winning idea will receive $1,000 from Oxfam to turn that idea into a reality!
Will you launch a sustainable menu at your restaurant and source the ingredients from small-scale farmers? Or perhaps start a community garden or food co-op in your community to encourage your neighbors to eat local?
Submit an idea from October 9 to November 13 (noon Pacific Time). Our judges will select which applicants will pass to the voting round. From November 14 to November 29, we’ll open it up to public voting. Rally your colleagues and friends to get behind your effort and join the public in selecting the winner.
