Summit Food Policy Coalition Logo, Branding and Collateral Development Request for Proposals
The vision of Summit Food Policy Coalition is to establish Summit County as a home to an economically vibrant, local and regional food industry where all residents are able to obtain and prepare nutritious food.
Summit Food Policy Coalition was established in 2009 by three organizations who frequently cooperated on food and agricultural projects. Over time, multiple organizations and individuals have joined forces with the Coalition, contributing expertise and ideas on key issues facing the agriculture sector, as well as community members related to food access and education.
Following a community assessment in 2014, Akron Community Foundation provided funding for strategic planning efforts for Summit Food Policy Coalition resulting in a succinct strategic plan and funding to support the efforts of the organization moving forward.
The four focus areas of Summit Food Policy Coalition are:
Build a system that provides year-round, affordable, nutritious food which is accessible to every resident
Create a culture of healthy eating
Support the development of a network of local food entrepreneurs
Establish policies that support access to healthy local food, sustainable land use, and neighborhood and economic development
Summit Food Policy Coalition is seeking logo design and branding services which will help create a consistent and recognizable look and message for the organization. The logo should communicate our collaborative, systems-changing nature, and our ability to connect people with the information they need to access healthful and local food.
Scope of Work
Limited collateral development: letterhead, business cards, e-news design
Branding guidelines for use in future website and collateral development

3. A schedule describing the sequence and timing of the work.
4. At least three examples of similar work, with contact information for references. 5. Any other information that the proposer believes will be helpful in evaluating the proposal.
