Putting the Cool in School Meals

Food for All

Using the power of branding to give food insecurity resources a facelift.

Project Bread is a Boston-based nonprofit working to break the cycle of hunger. They first came to us during the pandemic, when food insecurity was more pressing than ever, for help standing out in a noisy space. Over the course of two years, we gave them a full rebrand, complete with a new visual identity and website redesign, and created campaigns to help people sign up for SNAP, reach their FoodSource Hotline, and participate in their Walk for Hunger.

After a strong brand foundation was set and in active use, our next challenge was to apply this bold master brand identity to the rest of their sub-brand world. Our first task? Give their Childhood Nutrition Outreach Programs an engaging and bright update, to bolster outreach and attract newcomers to these crucial services. We started with Summer Eats, a program that sets up free food pick-up sites across the state of Massachusetts. From a giant ad campaign to new signage and swag, we fully embraced the sweet and colorful vibes of summer to create work that let people know that just because school was out, their resources were still there for them.

School Meals

“Stay Full, Eat at School”

Additionally, we created a different-yet-cohesive brand for School Meals, encouraging students to eat the free breakfast and lunch provided to them during the school days. Our “Stay Full, Eat at School” brand world paid homage to school culture, having fun with primary colors, schooltime gear, inspirational posters, and more.
