How Do You #VivaLent? CRS Launches Contest with Rice Bowl


CRS Rice Bowl has 5 new recipes from around the world and cooking videos for this year’s meatless meals to be enjoyed on Fridays. You can also find these recipes on the CRS Rice Bowl app.

Father Leo once again hosts the cooking videos. You’ll enjoy these videos, because in addition to the simple meal you’re taught to prepare, you also learn how that meal originated in its country and the work CRS Rice Bowl does in each country. It’s a great conversation starter for families who are eating together.


Additionally, CRS Rice Bowl will kick off its first Lenten Photo Challenge on March 5

Starting Ash Wednesday, anyone can submit a photo about how they Rice Bowl through Twitter or Instagram using the #VivaLent hashtag or upload a photo on the CRS Rice Bowl Facbook page.

Whether it’s making meatless meals, saying the rosary, passing out rice bowls at your parish, etc., we want to see how you Rice Bowl!

The photo with the most votes at the end wins an Easter basket from CRS Fair Trade. Please submit a photo and encourage your readers to do the same.
