Food from Home: A Social Marketing Campaign

enliven and a broad range of local partners are working together to design and implement a community-based social marketing campaign within the City of Greater Dandenong, City of Casey, and Cardinia Shire to promote growing food at home.

Our vision is to create a social movement that supports a resilient, healthy, and food-secure future for all households and communities in Melbourne’s South East.  The recent pandemic has exposed the fragility of our local food system, widened health and social inequities, and highlighted the importance of strengthening access to fresh, affordable, safe, and healthy food at a household level.

The aim of this digital campaign is to facilitate a positive shift in attitudes and behaviours that are supportive of growing food at home; through appealing to the values and intrinsic motivations of our community, and building awareness of the environmental, social, and health co-benefits of growing food at home.
