Continuing on ShareKitchen’s mission to help educate our community on “Where Food Comes From” we at ShareKitchen are excited to announce a local competition to create a logo for CV FRESH– a new local branding program funded by the UDSA Local Food Promotion Program grant awarded to ShareKitchen! This fresh, new branding and logo program is designed to help all of us easily identify food products and farm goods produced here in the Coachella Valley whenever we are shopping and eating locally! See the CV FRESH logo on something in a store or at the restaurant where you’re eating? The logo, designed by one of you, means that food was made or grown here in the Coachella Valley or grown by our agricultural community neighbors in Imperial Valley.

You will find the winning logo on the labels of locally made food products and locally grown produce in stores and marketplaces, on grocery store shelf tags, CV FRESH retail merchandising stands and on window clings for participating merchants and restaurants who source CV FRESH products.

The winning logo will be determined by a panel of judges at the ShareKitchen CV FRESH Tent during the Passport to Health Fair in Cathedral City on May 2 during the first annual Passport to Health – Health Fair and Health Glo Run 5K. This exciting evening event is a collaboration of Cathedral City Rotary, The Foundation for Palm Springs Unified School District, the City of Cathedral City and ShareKitchen.

Come join us for the CV FRESH logo competition and stay to celebrate at the ShareKitchen CV FRESH Tent with live cooking demonstrations and more. Featured local chefs will be making their favorite healthy recipes with CV FRESH local food goods and fresh locally grown produce.


Coachella Valley and Imperial Valley residents of all ages are encouraged to submit logo designs beginning this week. Guidelines for submission are available on The Desert Sun website, CV Weekly website and at To stay up to date on this contest and more “Like Us” at – and please share this CV FRESH logo competition with all of your friends!
