Purpose: to encourage contributions to local food banks by illustrating the buying power of a cash donation.

Behind the scenes: A friend who volunteers at a local food bank told me that cash is the better way to support a food bank. The organization has greater purchasing power than the average consumer.

I hope it encourages someone to help their local food bank.

Fact graphic: 9 foods with sawdust as an ingredient

Sawdust foods thumbnail

Purpose: experiment with animation.

According to an article in Men’s Health magazine sawdust is an ingredient in 31 foods. Sawdust is cellulose and is used as a source of fiber. Do we need more fiber in our diets? Apparently we do. The food processors don’t want to lose profits to whole, nutritious foods because they spend countless dollars to create foods that are just short of satisfying your tastebuds. Add cellulose to a product. It’s like vegetables and fruits.
