#TSUServiceDay Overview: Tarleton's Grocery Games

The Texas Social Media Research Institute served the Tarleton Food Pantry of Tarleton State University's Day of Service on April 7th, 2016. The social media coaches and board members teamed up to raise awareness of the university food pantry through a series of Periscopes done throughout the Day of Service.

TSMRI felt inspired by Guy's Grocery Games on Food Network to create our own cooking show, Tarleton version. Contestants had one minute to gather three ingredients, and then ten minutes to cook it, with only a microwave and bowls available. As fun as the game ended up being, it also had an important takeaway for students. Facing the kitchen with minimal supplies and ingredients takes a lot of creativity, but the contestants found that they could make delicious and nutritious meals from a few things that could come from the food pantry. The game had two rounds, one regular and one surprise breakfast round.
