Issue 00 – Call for Submissions

Our call for submissions for Issue 00: “Home Cooking” is now closed. Stay tuned for details about the issue’s launch, and call-outs for future issues.

With our first and pilot issue, we honour everyday food knowledge. We are asking for submissions on the theme of home cooking. What does home cooking mean to you? What stories, emotions, questions, relationships does “home cooking” bring up for you? In this year when many of us have been spending much time at home, what are you cooking and eating? What are your comfort foods? Who are the people you learned to cook from? What foods or meals are important to you? From who, or where, did you learn how to prepare them? How do you recreate, create and document home cooking knowledge?

About Submitting to Hungry

  • The deadline for submissions for Issue 00 is March 15th, 2021.
  • We will then review all submissions and make our selections. We want to respect you and your work by providing a reasonable response time. You can expect to hear back from us about your piece(s) by mid-April 2021.
  • If your piece is selected for publication, you will be paid $50 upon publication.
  • We prioritize the work of creators whose voices are missing in food media. We make this happen with an intentional selection process and a committed editorial team. If you would like to learn more about our values and how your submission might align, please read more at
