Whole Foods' New Contest Could Land You a Year of Free Groceries

A year's worth of free groceries and indelible culinary bragging rights might be yours if you create a unique holiday recipe, so put your thinking caps on and let your creative juices flow.

Whole Foods Market is running a contest called "Next Hot Bar Star" through November 30 that asks participants to record a video of themselves preparing a holiday side dish "worthy of the Whole Foods Market Hot Bar."

The participant with the best dish will get $10,000 in digital Whole Foods Market gift cards, a year's supply of groceries, and a vacation for two to the Whole Foods Market Global Test Kitchen in Austin, Texas.

During the holiday season of 2023, the grocery chain will also serve a dish based on the winning recipe at its Hot Bar.

The winner and the three runners-up, who will each receive a $10,000 gift card to Whole Foods, will be revealed on December 20.

You can submit an entry by uploading a video to one of three social media sites, including TikTok, Instagram, or Twitter, that is no longer than 60 seconds.

Follow @wholefoodsmarket on TikTok, @wholefoods on Instagram, or @wholefoods on Twitter to be eligible, and be sure to use the hashtag #WFMHotBarStarContest in the caption of your video. Instagram submissions must also include the hashtag @wholefoods in the caption.

It's crucial to keep in mind that the film needs to display both your finished dish and the procedures you took to prepare it as you come up with recipe ideas.

Contestants who are at least 18 years old and are citizens of the United States, with the exception of Alaska, Colorado, Delaware, Maryland, North Dakota, South Dakota, Vermont, and West Virginia, may enter the Next Hot Bar Star competition.

Professional cooks, chefs, and recipe creators are also prohibited from participating. The whole set of contest guidelines can be seen here.
