These recipe cards were created as part of a global awareness challenge from Make a Mark to help combat food insecurity. “Food insecurity is defined as a lack of access to food that contributes to a healthy lifestyle. This means that households that rely exclusively on snack cakes, canned ravioli and greasy fast food can still be food insecure. These people aren’t receiving the proper nutrients to live a healthy, active lifestyle that then impacts their bodies and minds.”
I chose recipes with few ingredients that would be easy to make and at the same time introduce people to healthy options they may not have previously considered. I designed icons to illustrate the ingredients with the goal of making these cards inviting and easy to follow.
The recipe cards will be sent to food-based nonprofits to be utilized in their work fighting food insecurity.
