Newman’s Own “Greens for Good” Recipe Contest: Top 5 Finalists Oct 20th 2014, 10:00, by Lori Lange
Fun news to share today! Newman’s Own® announced the five finalists in their “Greens for Good” Recipe Contest.


A quick recap of what this contest is all about: Salad lovers were asked to create a green salad recipe that utilized one of Newman’s Own® Salad Dressing flavors as an ingredient in the recipe. All recipes created were inspired by favorite charities. The Grand Prize winner will have the opportunity for a charity of their choice to receive a $35,000 donation from Newman’s Own®. A $1,000 donation will be awarded to charities chosen by the four first place winners.

How the finalists were selected: Consideration was given to looking for unique flavors in the recipes, as well as how the recipe creators were inspired by their favorite non-profit charities (aligning with Newman’s Own® four areas of giving: Encouraging, Philanthropy, Empowerment, Children with Life Limiting Conditions, and Nutrition). Newman’s Own is thrilled to be able to make a donation to a special charity chosen by the winner. I’m 100% behind this company > Newman’s Own®, inc. donates 100% of their profits after taxes to charities ($400 million since 1982!)

Five finalists were selected from a pool of hundreds of entrants, and here they are! Time to vote for your favorite finalist! >>
