Food Box Challenge

posted on September 14

Get out your thinking cap and tie on your favorite apron, it’s time to get creative in the kitchen!

Join Festival of Sharing as we kick off the Sharefest season with the Food Box Challenge.
Using items mainly from our Missouri Family Food Box, create a dish that is sure to wow the  crowd! Breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert or snack, we're hoping you or your team will pull out all your best cooking hacks.

Download the file below for a few directions for the challenge and an opportunity for a debrief following the fun.
When you are done cooking, snap a picture, write down the recipe, and send it to us on Facebook or Instagram (@FestivalofSharing ) or by email (
between September 1-30 to enter the challenge.

Two dishes will be selected as winners in the categories of "Just Roll With It," featuring a quick dish using few ingredients,
and "Hello Gourdgeous," featuring a dish that looks too good to eat.

Winners will receive a sweet treat for themselves or their team, and Festival of Sharing will donate five Missouri kits to an agency of their choosing in their area.

Sharefest 2021
The Missouri Family Food Box includes shelf-stable food items like

  1. canned fruit,
  2. vegetables 
  3. peanut butter.
These boxes benefit a variety of agencies (like food pantries and resource offices) around Missouri who share them with the communities they serve.
