Sustainable, organic, local, seasonal, humane — with all these buzzwords flitting about the food world, it's hard to know which are meaningful and which are just marketing fluff. The recently launched Sustainable Food Challenge from sustainable brand consultancy BBMG asks readers to tackle this question for themselves, by answering a few questions about what "sustainable food" means to them.
The challenge also includes a recipe contest: Log in to BBMG's online consumer community, The Collective and upload a recipe you feel best illustrates the concept of sustainable food. You could win a $500 shopping spree at Whole Foods or tasty giveaways from brands like Peeled Snacks, Earthbound Farm, Divine Chocolate, and 18 Rabbits. And be sure to check back with us later this spring — we'll have a sneak peek at the winning recipes right here on The Daily Meal.
