Announcing the winners of the Kitchen Hacks Challenge!

1 comment ·

Our first-ever Kitchen Hacks Challenge has wrapped! A HUGE thank you to every family who participated.

In April we invited families across BC to share their best family meal hacks for a chance to win cash prizes and support local food banks in our first-ever Kitchen Hacks Challenge! Nearly 50 video entries were submitted from families all across BC. We thank you for sharing your best meal hacks with us and supporting local food banks. Thanks to your participation and our partnership with BC dairy farmers, $6400 will be donated to Food Banks BC!

We are very excited to announce the Kitchen Hacks Challenge 2020 winners:

Grand Prize Winner: 40¢ Microwave Burritos (Submitted by Callista A.)

People's Choice Prize: Roll With It! (Submitted by Kylee C.)

So many wonderful meal hacks were submitted this year! While there are only two official winners, our panel of judges wanted to give an honourable mention to the following:

20-Minute Salsa Chicken Hack

Frozen Cookie Dough Balls = Freshly Baked Cookies

Lila’s Mac Hack

Yam Gnocchi

Our jury all thoroughly enjoyed watching the videos and seeing everyone’s best tips and tricks for connecting together in the kitchen. Thank you to Samantha Gutmanis, Barb Finley, Art Napoleon, and Anna Brisco for taking the time to review and score the videos! 

Highlights of the 2020 Kitchen Hacks Challenge:

  • We received 49 inspiring video entries! Watch all of the amazing videos here.

  • A variety of hacks were showcased from time-saving sheet pan meals to creating your own sourdough starters to getting creative with canned soup and more.

Thank you to our generous sponsors who made this contest possible: BC Dairy Association, the BC Chicken Marketing Board and BC Egg. The Kitchen Hacks Challenge was launched to inspire families across the province, and we hope it inspired you to connect in the kitchen and enjoy more meals together!
