I am currently trying to schedule some Food Font events with various farmer markets, farms, CSA groups, food stores and with other groups.
The food alphabets can be made out of any type of food. At a farmer’s market visitors could be invited to make a letter out of their market purchases. Another font could be made out of One local in-season ingredient, where visitors help contribute making a letter out of ripe strawberries in June or Tomatoes in August. A school or community garden could make a food font out of vegetables from their garden. A store or restaurant could host an event where an alphabet is made out of their food or a local farm’s food.
When the food font is loaded into the design tool, a font name and event information will be inputted, and others will learn about other markets, farms, and groups.
I am currently working to schedule Food Font events from July 15 until September 15th, and am hoping to do a Food Font event with your market. I hope to get the word out about the Food Font project and to inspire others to do the Food Font activity.
Watch for the scheduled events to be posted soon here!
