Update #1

Blueberries, Okra, Buffalo, and Kickstarter!

Comment

This has been a busy week!

Food Font had its first farmer market event at the Elmwood-Bidwell Farmers Market in Buffalo, NY. People at the market made a food alphabet out of food from local farms. Food that was used included peaches from Bozard's Farm; squash, onions, tomatoes, beans: from Native Offerings Farm; cucumbers, okra from Winter Farms and blueberries from Erdle farm.

Before the end of the event the entire list of letters, numbers, and characters got done. People still stopped by to make letters – so we ended up with some extra Q’s and A’s (and maybe some extra P’s.) The alphabet shows the mood of the event – upbeat, creative, and curious. There are some really elegant letters and numbers that were made. People really took some time in crafting a letter, carefully adjusting blueberries, okra, or picking out the right green bean. 

Thanks to everyone who came out to the event!  Pictures from the event are up on the Food Font Photo page and also on Flickr. The Elmwood-Bidwell food alphabet will eventually be edited and put into the Food Font interactive design tool when built.

Yesterday was the official launch of the Food Font Kickstarter – with information going out to inboxes, social media, blogs, and to some press contacts. 

This upcoming weekend Food Font will be at Weaver Street Market in Carrboro, NC where people will be making a Food Font out of peppers from a local farm.

If you are thinking about what kind of food you would like to use in the Food Font interactive tool, why not make a food alphabet yourself?   Resources were recently updated on the Food Font website that can help guide you through the process of how to setup an event or make an alphabet. Directions for making a food font, uploading your pictures, and promotional materials are all on the site to help you make a food font.  

Thanks for supporting Food Font.
Soon Everyone will all be able to play and write with our food.
