Calling Baltimore-DC Artists: Logo Design Contest


Give One for Good Food® is an emerging Baltimore-based network of businesses that pledge to give 1% of sales revenues to nonprofit organizations that are leading the way towards a healthier, more equitable food system. Contributions from member businesses support non-profit partners that are improving access to healthy food and providing nutrition education, such as Whitelock Community Farm, Gather Baltimore and the Maryland Market Money Program 

The new Give One for Good Food®  logo will be proudly displayed on the products and services of businesses that give 1%, including founding member, Michele's Granola. The logo will become widely recognized as the movement grows throughout Baltimore and beyond, connecting consumers to brands that are making a positive difference. 


The purpose of the contest is to design a logo for Give One for Good Food® that business members will carry on their products and service as a "seal of support" for improving the health of our communities by addressing inequities in our food system.
