Humanities Council seeking stories of Thanksgiving food

Sunday, October 31, 2010

The Indiana Humanities Council is seeking submissions of Thanksgiving stories. Entries may win $100 in free groceries.

Thanksgiving means an assortment of culturally significant foods that often are passed down through generations. In many ways, the traditional Thanksgiving dinner symbolizes a unique shared food heritage.

The council is looking for stories from Hoosiers as part of its Food for Thought initiative. "Food for Thought" is a statewide, two-year program that examines food and its role in Hoosiers' lives and culture.

Hoosiers who submit a story enter to win a drawing for $100 in free groceries courtesy of Indiana's Family of Farmers.

Stories can be about specific foods served at Thanksgiving and why, meal disasters, memories connected to recipes or any story related to food and Thanksgiving.

Responses must be submitted by Friday, Nov. 19, at www.indianahumanities.org. The winners will be chosen at random. Stories collected may be used online at www.FoodforThoughtIndiana.org and promoted through various social media tools.

The Indiana Humanities Council connects people, opens minds and enriches lives by creating and facilitating programs that encourage people to think, read, and talk.
