Join Oldways for a virtual dinner party
to celebrate International Mediterranean Diet Month!

To demonstrate that delicious and healthy Mediterranean-style meals can be enjoyed anywhere, we invite you to post photos of yourself taking pleasure in a taste of the Mediterranean—at home or in restaurants—for a chance to win weekly prizes and one grand prize during Med Month 2014.

We have several ways to help you find delicious, healthy Mediterranean food for your celebration:

  • Choose a restaurant from our 5 in 50+ list, which includes at least 5 restaurants in each state (plus Washington, DC) that offer at least 1 of 5 different classic Mediterranean foods or dishes: couscous, falafel, pesto, stuffed grape leaves, or tapas.
  • Choose a restaurant and a dish from our Casual Dining list, which includes some of the best options from your favorite casual dining restaurants.
  • Patronize your favorite Mediterranean restaurant. Be sure to tell us the name and location of the restaurant so we can add it to our 5 in 50+ list.
  • Make amazing meals at home with recipes from the Oldways Recipe Database.
  • Make amazing meals at home with your own recipes and share the stories of where you found or how you developed them on the Oldways Facebook page.

To submit your photo for your chance to win a weekly give-away of The Oldways 4-Week Mediterranean Diet Menu Plan and Chef Sets from Mediterranean Foods Alliance (MFA) member Chef Ana Sortun, and our grand prize of delectable Mediterranean foods from the Mediterranean Foods Alliance members, just post it to:

Post up to one photo per platform per meal. Each post on each platform counts as an entry (i.e. you may post the same photo to all three platforms to enter the drawing three times) for that week’s drawing and for the grand-prize drawing.

Weekly drawings for a copy of The Oldways 4-Week Mediterranean Diet Menu Plan and Chef Sets from Mediterranean Foods Alliance (MFA) member Chef Ana Sortun will take place every Friday in May (May 2, 9, 16, 23, and 30). The grand-prize drawing of Mediterranean foods from MFA members (including Al Wadi Al Akhdar, Ana Sortun Chef SetBard Valley Natural Delights, Barilla, California Walnuts, Foodmatch/Divina, and International Collection) will take place on Monday, June 2. Winners will be notified through the social media platform by which they entered within 3 business days of each drawing. Winners must provide Oldways with a valid mailing address for delivery of the prize(s). Entries submitted prior to May 1, 2014 will be considered as entries for the May 2 drawing.
