Nutrition will be graded on a 10-point scale based on THIS CHART

Our chefs will evaluate the overall ease of making each recipe in a healthcare operation and assess the number of ingredients used (we recommend 10 ingredients or fewer).

Recipes will be evaluated based on how well they reflect current culinary trends and the demands of today’s patrons.


Submit your recipe and information by December 1, 2022, at 11:59pm EST. Please note this contest is open only to chefs, dieticians, and operators currently employed in healthcare foodservice. Employment will be verified.

To be considered, your submission must include the 3 components detailed below as attachments:

This completed form with the recipe name, serving size, cooking time, ingredients with measurements and directions. Only 1 recipe may be entered per person.

Photo of a single serving of your final dish. Accepted files: jpg, png, gif, docx, pdf and zip files up to 25MB.

Your recipe’s complete nutrition information, which must include the nutrient and food component criteria shown in this chart for verification purposes. Accepted files: docx, pdf, pptx, csv, xlsx and zip files up to 25MB.


In early January, we’ll reach out to the creators of the five winning recipes via email. We’ll post the winning recipes and operators’ names on this page on January 31, 2023.



All five winning recipes will be photographed and featured in the Campbell’s Foodservice 2023 canned soup recipe book. For each of the top three winning recipes, we’ll create a recipe demo video at Campbell’s World Headquarters kitchen. The operator who created the recipe will get to be part of the filming process via a video call. The resulting videos will be promoted on Campbell’s Foodservice social media channels, where followers will be able to vote for their favorite. The winner of the “public vote” will receive an additional $500.

It's time to rethink the can.

Thanks for your entry.

Here at Campbell’s Foodservice, we can’t wait to see how you’ve taken canned soup beyond the can. Check our website for the announcement of the winners on January 31, 2023.
