Mise en place (meez en plas)

2014 Brand Book and Style Guide | Greater Cleveland Food Bank

Mis en place is a French phrase meaning putting in place. It’s used in professional kitchens all over the world to refer to organizing and arranging ingredients. How appropriate it also be the title of a style guide that will help the Greater Cleveland Food Bank keep every element of its brand in its proper place.

NEW LOOK, SAME GREAT FOOD BANK The Greater Cleveland Food Bank is the largest hunger relief organization in Northeast Ohio, providing more than 40 million meals annually. We’re serious about ending hunger in our communities.

Each year 50 million meals are needed to feed the hungry in Greater Cleveland.

8,000 More than 8,000 meals are served at the Greater Cleveland Food Bank Kitchen each day.

1= 4 meals


A donation of one dollar can provide four meals for hungry people in our communities.

Here’s how it works $




Businesses, schools and other organizations, as well as individuals, donate food and money.

Once donations arrive at the Food Bank, volunteers sort, repackage or prepare the food to be distributed in the community.



In addition to food pantries and hot meal sites, distribution agencies includes Kids Cafes, Back Pack for Kids programs, Summer Food Service programs, and Mobile Pantries.

Nutritious meals are provided to more than 224,000 people in a six-county area. Half of these clients are children or senior citizens.

LOGO Why the change? We changed the Greater Cleveland Food Bank name to better reflect our service area. The new logo functions better in both the digital and print worlds. Using the original logo as a starting point, the entire logo shifted to a horizontal alignment, rather then vertical. The icon and type were updated, and colors were reconciled with the Harvest for Hunger green.
