Boldly rethinking the complex school lunch system to improve nutrition for all students.

FoodCorps is a national nonprofit working to change the school lunch system in the United States at the macro and micro level so that all students–regardless of race, place, or class–enjoy healthy, nourishing food in school, free from stigma and barriers to access. The organization works on the ground in schools and partners with a number of stakeholders from local and national government, large grant funders, and corporations to improve the school lunches.

Studio Rainwater worked with FoodCorps to produce infographics and materials that capture the varied efforts to build support, explain the complex existing system, and inspire an achievable path toward change.

Using research and data collected by FoodCorps and their partners from leaders across the school food system, we designed a report for the reWorking Lunch initiative that would convey complex information and inspire participants and potential partners to take action.

We used a large format to conceptually reflect the scale of the work to be undertaken, creating a clear hierarchy of detailed information. The final piece reflected the stakeholders’ expertise without losing the playfulness of kids who would ultimately be impacted by the work.

We have also worked with FoodCorps to design infographics that convey the scope of their work with optimism and clarity.

The design has helped form the basis for ongoing work being done by the organization to push their initiatives forward. The communications have helped to build understanding and engagement among many stakeholders as the project moves into the next phase of work.
