What is a Food Rescue hero?
A hunger action hero collects extra food from grocery stores, hotels, restaurants, and farms before it goes to waste (that’s called food rescue). Then, the hero gets the food to people facing hunger. Your character will rally the community around those who need a little extra help with food assistance and celebrate those who take action.
What should I submit?
You will submit original artwork* and a brief paragraph explaining your hero’s origin story. Make sure to use Food Finders Logo (top) on your design!
*Please use your imagination to create your own hero character, unfortunately, we cannot accept drawings that include copyrighted characters for example Superman, Wonder Woman, or Spider-Man.
What is an origin story?
Every superhero has an origin story. This story explains how they got their powers and why they decided to help others. When writing a brief paragraph about your character’s origin story, ask yourself:
How did your superhero first decide to end hunger?
What are your superhero’s special powers?
How do they help the world by ending hunger through food rescue?
