Food for Families

Design, Layout , Illustration, Print • Sue Evans Foundation • Melbourne

This Social Design Project in collaboration with the women at the Maternal & Child Health Phone-line was in response to the Black Saturday Fires, one of the worst bushfire disasters in Victoria’s recent memory. It involved bringing together a host of different people in an organic contributive way to realise a project that aimed to address and relieve the conditions of a group of people profoundly affected by the disaster.

This little book was developed for the Sue Evans Foundation, a charity established by Sue Evans’ sister Carolyn in memory of the family she lost in the tragedy. The charity raises funds for people affected by the Black Saturday Fires.
Recipes contributed by the wonderful women at her work place. The book continues to be printed and sold to raise funds for the people affected by the 2009 Fires.

Illustrations are done in pen and ink, and the collected nature of the content expressed through speech bubbles and varying typefaces.

If you would like to donate to this wonderful charity you can buy this book, or any of the other two insightful books on Surviving Traumatic Grief, at the Sue Evans Foundation Website.

The Black Saturday bushfires were a series of bushfires that ignited, or were burning across the Australian state of Victoria, on and around Saturday, 7 February 2009. They have been referred to as Australia’s ‘worst ever natural disaster’. The fires occurred during extreme bushfire-weather conditions and resulted in Australia’s highest ever loss of life from a bushfire; 173 people died and 414 were injured as a result of the fires. As many as 400 individual fires were recorded on 7 February. Following the events of 7 February 2009 and its aftermath, that day has become widely referred to as Black Saturday. (Wikipedia).
