Cuyahoga County Board of Health

Inspiring schools and young minds to make healthy food choices.

The client.

The Cuyahoga County Board of Health (CCBH) believes in the power of getting fresh, healthy and local foods onto students’ trays. They decided bring a farm-to-school purchasing program to public Northeast Ohio schools. They partnered with Muse to position them for success.

The key ingredients.

How did we get broccoli and carrots to compete with pizza and fries? We created a multi-faceted positioning strategy and content-rich media assets that made kids, parents, educators and food service professionals hungry for healthier foods.

The positioning strategy reinforced the critical role audiences play in food education. An online pledge form gathered contacts for ongoing communication. We also created digital and print assets that made healthy foods the heroes of the story.
