ShareKitchen is excited to announce a local contest to create a logo design for CV FRESH, the Coachella Valley’s new local food branding project funded by a USDA 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!  The winning logo will be determined by a Selection Committee at the ShareKitchen CV FRESH Tent during the first annual Passport to Health Fair on May 2 in Downtown Cathedral City.  This evening event from 5 pm to 10 pm will feature a health fair with free health screenings, cooking demonstrations and a ‘Glo-tastic’ 5K Run Walk ( produced by Palm Springs Unified School District in collaboration with Cathedral City Rotary, the City of Cathedral City, Salvation Army and ShareKitchen.

The grant funds received by ShareKitchen for the CV FRESH logo design project will be used to help the logo design winner put their logo into final form with a graphic designer, design and purchase merchandise stands for grocery stores and retail outlets that will hold locally made products, provide participating farmers and local food makers with labels for their goods and digital logo files for their use, window clings for restaurants and retailers who source and sell CV FRESH products, shelf tags to help you identify products and more.
