Pledge A PLate

The Problem

OzHarvest is an organisation that rescues unwanted and unclaimed food otherwise destined for landfill and distributes it to over 2 million Australians that suffer from food insecurity. The cost of wasted food is incredibly high, both to society and the environment.

The organisation needed to drive awareness of their mission and involve more people in their business model – through actively participating in their food rescue programs as volunteers, by donating money to their cause, or by sharing on their message to reduce and prevent food waste.


The Insight

As the intersection of personal branding and sharing lifestyles, social media is the perfect place to build a charitable movement around preventing food waste.


The Solution

We created a social movement that enlightened consumers of the scale of Australia’s food waste problem, while driving consumers to engage in a microcosm of their business model.

Pledge A Plate was a challenge that encouraged consumers to create a new meal from their leftovers, sharing their creation across social media with #pledgeaplate, challenging others to join in and donating the money they saved to OzHarvest’s food rescue and education programs.


The Results

Pledge a Plate launched the Eat, Think, Save campaign which has been responsible for spreading awareness of global and local food waste.
