I was going to ask you "what's going on", particularly with this line:

        if name and food in each_dict:

I'm pretty sure it doesn't do it, but what did you want that line to do?

But the best hint I can think of is this: to pass this challenge, you only need to correctly fill in the argument to "format", no other code is needed.
