Going out for family brunch and date night sushi are suddenly a thing of the past. With restaurants closed for table service due to COVID-19, we are all eating at home a lot! On the upside, we’re experimenting with new recipes, getting the kids involved and eating together. On the downside, it’s a lot of meal prep day in and day out. We’re guessing you have some tried and true short cuts. Why not share? You could win a cash prizes, help your fellow mom, and support the food bank.
Enter the Kitchen Hacks video contest from Better Together, by sharing a super short one-minute) video of your favourite time-saving meal hack. You could win up to $1000, and no matter what, your entry will help support the Food Bank.
This is a fun, simple challenge you can do with your kids at home. Nothing fancy is required — just share your hack, and why it works for your family.
So, what’s a hack? A hack is any tip or trick that helps you make a family meal happen in your home. It could be your favourite go-to recipe or ‘prep-cipe’ (a recipe with a partially pre-prepped element) or a tip or trick that makes it easier for your family to sit down and eat together.
