Queen Victoria Market and Food For Everyone team-up to support SecondBite with kids poster
The poster celebrates Queen Victoria Market, as well as creating an opportunity for parents to teach children about healthy eating habits. It also serves as a colourful reminder of the importance of shopping locally.
The collaboration came to fruition when Food For Everyone founder and artist Gemma Leslie sought to create a piece especially for kids after recently having her first child.
Leslie says: “Queen Victoria Market is synonymous with food and the city of Melbourne. The Market is such a wondrous place, especially for kids, and I wanted to capture its lively spirit in the poster.”
“Fruit salad is the perfect representation of Queen Victoria Market and neighbourhood markets. It’s a whole lot of colourful characters with delicious offerings, coming together to make something special,” says Leslie.
Queen Victoria Market CEO Stan Liacos says: “We are delighted to be working with Food For Everyone to help produce this fantastic piece of artwork that not only showcases the importance of educating kids about healthy eating habits but also gives back to the local community through the Market’s food rescue partner SecondBite.”
The Queen Victoria Market fruit salad poster will be available in two sizes (A2 and A3) and is on sale now, exclusively via the Food For Everyone website: www.foodforeveryone.org.au.
Through SecondBite, the sale of each A2 poster will provide the equivalent of 225 meals to families in need while each A3 poster will contribute approximately 162 meals.
