The Challenge: Chefs must use items on the approved list of WIC and at least two items typically found in food pantry staples. Additionally, chefs must provide the recipe modified for preparation on a crockpot, hot plate, or steamer. Each recipe will be shared via OCGReno.org and a booklet of all recipes will be created.

Not just a fundraiser! Select social-service organizations partnered with On Common Ground will receive 2 complimentary event tickets to extend to their clients or use for train-the-trainer programs. We ask you to consider sponsoring or helping to sponsor a deserving attendee who could not otherwise experience the event. Sponsored attendees will be chosen at the discretion of partnering social-service organizations from clients who have demonstrated the will and the drive to improve the health and nutrition of their own families and community.
