Giving Thanks with Flavor

11/24/2014 11:46AM, Published by Wendy Turner, Categories: Family Features Food, Family Features




As the holidays draw near, we all look forward to delicious food and creating memories with family and friends. It’s also a time to give back to those in need.

Giving back has been an integral part of McCormick’s 125th anniversary program, Flavor of Together, which draws to a close this holiday season. People around the world shared stories about flavor. For every story shared – from recipes to memories of family gatherings – McCormick donated $1 to United Way Worldwide to help feed those in need, culminating in a $1.25 million donation.

“Many stories we received throughout the year were about holiday moments because food plays such an important role in what brings people together,” said Chef Kevan Vetter of the McCormick Kitchens. “To celebrate, we’re sharing two holiday recipes we created this year: mini apple pies and corn bread and sausage stuffing, to help families create new memories and traditions while enjoying the flavors they’ve always loved.”
