Are you a food pun fan? Do you like quirky tees, tanks, and mugs that serve a purpose? This is my super power.

It started in a popular chain clothing store with a summer tee that said, “breakfast, lunch, dinner” with images of a doughnut, a slice of pizza, and a taco. My first instinct was, “this is neither cute, nor funny”. It’s not that I don’t eat these foods myself now and then, I just didn’t get the humor in  encouraging 3 meals of processed food. I love foody shirts, but I needed something more creative.

I thought about various puns that had run through my head throughout my life. My point in making and wearing puns was to poke fun of diet culture and start a fun conversation about food. I worked with a few graphic designers for images and this was my start. I came up with Lettuce Beet Hunger as the shop name.

Lettuce Beet Hunger is meant to “take a bite” out of food insecurity. A portion of each purchase supports those with food insecurity by providing counseling, programs and nutrition education in the Cincinnati area. The food puns are original ideas and designed to be silly and simple.

How you make a difference: When you wear, give or share a food pun shirt or swag, you support my mission and spread awareness of food insecurity in the Cincinnati community. Tee shirts and cards are available at the Civic Garden Center Gift shop, Kennedy Heights Arts Center gift shop, Morsel & Nosh in Northside and online. Look for Sound Bites Nutrition at various farmers markets and festivals like Earth Day, too. 

Lettuce partner! I’d love to co-brand a design with your company or group. Message me and we’ll make it happen!
