(NAPSI)-As food prices rise, Americans are finding smart ways to feed their family without spending a lot of cash. Now a contest celebrates that thrifty culinary creativity by awarding gift cards, food and even a taste of fame to entrants who submit winning recipes that will feed four for $10.
A Growing Problem
Prices for household necessities such as milk, eggs, bread and flour rose sharply during the past year, at near double-digit rates, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Egg prices grew as much as 40 percent and milk jumped more than 25 percent. Even Red Delicious apples climbed from 96 cents a pound in 2006 to $1.16 per pound in 2008.
As a result, people have found ways to stretch their family dollar-whether it's buying foods in bulk or growing their own vegetables.
A contest, called "Feed 4 for $10," sponsored by Success Rice, encourages people to share quick-and-easy recipes prepared on a budget. The best recipes will be published at SuccessRice.com, and the top 10 winners will receive a variety pack of Success Rice. The top three winners will also receive gift cards.
The first-place winner will be awarded a $500 gift card. The second- and third-place winners will receive $250 and $100 gift cards, respectively. All 10 winners will receive a variety pack of rice, including Brown, White and Jasmine.
The winning recipes, which must be a main dish and ready in 30 minutes or less, will be selected based on taste, creativity, appearance and ease of preparation. All recipes must include any Success Rice product (White, Brown or Jasmine). Entries must be in the standard recipe format, including a list of ingredients and measurements, cooking directions, cooking times and number of servings. The recipes must be original and not previously published.
More information, including contest entry conditions, can be found at www.SuccessRice.com/ feed4for10. Contest entries must be received by December 28, 2008.
