Today is World Food Day. Nov. 6, 2013, is One Meal One Day*. Between now and then, we’re hosting a scavenger hunt…complete with prizes.

  • T-shirts
  • Whole bean, fair trade coffee, from Three Avocados (1)
  • Books and CDs
    • A Little Salty to Cut the Sweet: Southern Stories of Faith, Family, and Fifteen Pounds of Bacon by Sophie Hudson (a.k.a. Boomama) (1)
    • Southern Plate: Classic Comfort Food That Makes Everyone Feel Like Family by Christy Jordan (1)
    • A Place at the Table by Chris Seay (1)
    • for KING & COUNTRY’s latest CD, Crave (5)

To participate, take pictures of the following scavenger hunt items between now and 9 p.m. MT on Nov. 6, 2013. Each item will earn you contest entries. Some items will earn you more entries than others.

The photos fall into several categories, each highlighting a different aspect of the One Meal One Day campaign*: blessing, waste, need and advocacy.

one meal one day child eating

A Child Eating…maybe even a shot of a child with food all over his or her face


one meal one day praying

A Family Gathering [involving food]…perhaps a photo of saying grace

one meal one day food served

Food Being Served…at a homeless shelter, at a restaurant, at home, etc.

A Shopping Cart…preferably from a grocery store

one meal one day garden

A Vegetable Garden, or someone working in his or her garden

one meal one day food message

A Word or Message Written With Food (e.g., pepperoni, Hershey’s Kisses, jelly beans, peas, etc.)

Share your photos in Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Google+, etc., then come back here and post the URL to your photo in the widget at the end of this post to get your contest entries.

  • We understand having to come back to this post to paste your URL in the widget is annoying, but it’s necessary to ensure we have a verifiable pool of entries (i.e., we don’t miss any) to randomly select our winners from.

*Although Compassion has since retired the One Meal One Day initiative mentioned in this article, we are SO thankful for everyone who participated in the life-changing movement!

    How do you want us to tag our photos?

    1. Chris Giovagnoni October 18, 2013

      It’s not necessary to tag them since the entry mechanism is the Rafflecopter widget. However, #onemealoneday would be a relevant tag if you want to use one.

    I’m excited for this one! I love your scavenger hunts – it gives purpose and meaning to my photo taking and keeps me aware of many things. (the blessings that surround me and the importance of Compassion’s ministry)
