The holiday season is a great time to get festive, celebrate with loved ones, give back to your community, AND creates new holiday memories. #YourFoodStory may include making traditional family recipes to celebrate the holidays, or getting together with family and friends to decorate your festive baked goods. Perhaps #YourFoodStory is celebrated by giving back, donating food or serving food to those less fortunate.
