Challenge

We worked with the Daily Bread Food Bank (DBFB) to create a guerilla-marketing campaign to reach their goals of:

  • creating curiosity about the campaign
  • driving traffic to an informative website, and
  • engaging individuals to petition for anti-poverty legislation.

Solution

In collaboration with the DBFB team, we developed a remarkable marketing concept, a campaign name, visual design, strategic plans, media plans and a unique guerrilla marketing campaign.

“Hungry City – Make Your Mark” was implemented throughout the greater Toronto area. With advertising in public areas such as sidewalks and street-lamp posts, the campaign’s bright colour palette and spray-painted graphic design were highly visible. To further engage citizens “Hungry City” included a website, web banner-ads, bus designs, street teams, sidewalk chalking, posters, buttons, bags and collateral.

Impact

The Hungry City campaign garnered public and media attention prior to a provincial election.

More than 15,000 signatures and pledges were gathered in support of the anti-poverty movement. The campaign is credited for influencing the Child Poverty Bill, which passed in 2007. In 2011, the campaign design won an RGD Social Good Award.
