WHAT: Earthbound Farm’s Earth Day promotion asks Facebook friends new and old to “Eat Better for the Earth, Eat Better for Yourself” by participating in a photo contest honoring Earth Day and the way our food choices can help reduce our impact on the planet.
The reward is a chance to win three delicious days in Monterey, California with Earthbound Farm, celebrity chefs and Food Network stars at Cooking for Solutions 2011®, America’s sustainable food and wine party at the Monterey Bay Aquarium.
HOW: Facebook users who like Earthbound Farm can enter the contest by answering the question, “What do you love — or hate — about what’s on your plate?” with a snapshot from any meal and 50 words or less. Facebook users can share with their friends and vote for their favorite entries. The most popular entries will be eligible for weekly prizes, and Earthbound Farm will choose the Grand Prize winner from among the top 10 entries with the most votes overall.
WHEN: The contest runs from March 29, 2011 through April 19, 2011, on Earthbound Farm’s Facebook page.
