Tell your food story

Imagine your face here

Food Network producer Ingrid Escajeda is in the process of creating a series of shorts called “The Power of Food.” These one minute documentaries will tell the story of real people whose lives were changed by food. I’m pretty sure every vegan has a story like that. So go on and submit your food story at the Food Network website.

If your story is chosen by the network, they’ll go out and film you telling your story, as well as any relevant things and places, i.e you in the garden or kitchen, old photographs, etc.. The contest is open to anyone in the U.S..

Confused about what to submit? Ingrid describes a little bit of what she’s looking for:

[The stories] can be funny, touching, or both. For instance:
  • How being part of cooperative garden in the middle of the inner city changed a kid’s perspective on his future
  • Someone trying to track down a certain ingredient met a future spouse in the one store they found the ingredient in.
  • A woman quit her job to go home and take care of her cancer-stricken mother. She started researching nutritional treatments and ended up starting an organic farm business.

I’m pretty much looking for anything with a strong, tangible hook, where food has really affected someone’s life. They need to be more than just “I love food, therefore I became a chef or opened a bakery” (even though that’s a great thing).

People MUST submit their stories through the website, but if they have any questions, they can email me at
