Who can make a Food Font?
Food Font is designed for use by a variety of groups including you with your friends and family, farmer’s markets, teachers and students in the classroom, community gardens, chefs and restaurants, and people who have a passion for food. It is a fun, creative activity that you can do.
How can I get started?
To make a food alphabet, a group of individuals work together to make an alphabet out of food. The food fonts can be made out of any kind of food that you want. After each of the letters are made – each letter and punctuation symbol is photographed by the leader of the activity, or by someone in the group.
These are some resources you can use to help you get started making food alphabets and doing a Food Font event!
