Enter by March 10 at noon for free Field to Feast tickets

edHow does a tempting feast prepared by to Disney chefs sound? Now what if that feast were free? That can happen for you if you enter the Field to Feast giveaway, which is accepting entries through March 10 at noon for tickets to the sumptuous March 25 dinner.

Snap a pic to enter

All you have to do to enter is tap into your creativity and taking a photo that represents one of these three words: Field, To, or Feast.Here’s hw the words are defined and interpreted for the contest:

  • Field: For love of local farms, gardens, and markets. Take aim at a seedling, your freshly canned vegetables, or other homage to the (local) earth’s bounty.
  • To: To honor of the charity we’re serving. Share your best shot of you volunteering at Second Harvest Food Bank, or collecting donations.
  • Feast: celebrate the culinary creativity of Disney chefs.  Upload photos of food from around The World.

As you can see, there’s lots of room to let your inner photographic genius run wild. Once you find that perfect shot, share it via Facebook, Twitter, and.or Instagram using the hashtags #F2F17 and #EdibleDisney. Doing so grants permission to Edible Orlando to use your photo, but the potential payoff is well worth it. If you win the two tickets, they’re a $350 value. Watch for an announcement of the winners around March 15 for the March 25 dinner. If you’re a fan of Walt Disney World restaurants like the California Grill and Citricos, that’s basically an evening in Heaven. In addition to food, you get to enjoy live music, a raffle, and even a farm tour.

Help a great cause

Even if you don’t win tickets, you can purchase them and support a great cause: Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida, which helps ensures that kids and families don’t go hungry. All proceeds from this event support the food bank’s Kids Cafe Program to feed children after school. You can buy tickets via this link. This event sells out, so don’t procrastinate!

Speaking of delicious Disney food, don’t forget that the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival is on right now, with a plethora of incredible eats. Here’s an overview from Chef Gregg Hannon of what you can dine on through May 29:
