General Mills Foodservice is calling on independent family restaurants to enter its Neighborhood to NationTM Recipe Contest for a chance to win up to $50,000 ($40,000 cash plus a $10,000 charitable donation) and the opportunity to put their local dishes in the national spotlight. 


From Aug. 1 through Sept. 30, 2014, restaurants may submit their favorite original breakfast, entrée or dessert recipes or create a new special that uses at least one ingredient from General Mills’ list of eligible products. Three category winners will be selected from which, two will each be awarded a $10,000 first prize, and one will earn the Grand Prize: $40,000 cash and a $10,000 donation to a local charity.

The “Neighborhood to Nation” recipe contest is open to foodservice operators, chefs and line cooks at independent family dining or “neighborhood” restaurants to celebrate the one-of-a-kind dishes that reflect their local flavor. The contest is also intended to inspire culinary creativity, giving operators an opportunity to experiment with high quality and consistent products from General Mills as well as exclusive access to trend information, insights and ideas to help them differentiate their menus and delight their diners.

“We are inspired by the local flavor our customers cook up every day in neighborhoods across the country and look forward to celebrating these one-of-a-kind dishes with the ‘Neighborhood to Nation’ Recipe Contest,” said Grace Gilbertson, senior marketing manager for General Mills Foodservice. “Recognizing the strong connection these neighborhood establishments have in their communities, we are particularly thrilled to award our Grand Prize winner an additional $10,000 to share with a local charity.”
