Feed Happiness was an innovative social media campaign undertaken by nineteen organisations in Melbourne’s Southern Metropolitan Region in February 2021. In a region-first approach, and in response to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and the ‘lock-down’ of metropolitan Melbourne in 2020, the campaign focused on the promotion of healthy eating to support good mental health. Feed Happiness involved collaboration between all partner organisations to develop and promote campaign messaging, supported by capacity building workshops and consultancy from Common Cause Australia and Ellis Jones. The campaign was delivered via Facebook and Instagram over four weeks.
An evaluation was undertaken by members of the project Steering Group following the completion of the campaign. The final Evaluation Report, Appendices or Snapshot Infographic are available to view or download via the links below:
