OFN success stories to share/case studies for communications and marketing

Hi all, I’m doing some work for a particular project for OFN Aus (https://openfoodnetwork.org/au/learn/) which crosses over into some general communications thinking for OFN Aus, and it would be great to have a place where people could share stories of OFN successes.

I feel like I’ve come across some asides in conversations which point to some great stories of how OFN is being used, but it would be great if on an ongoing basis people could share things that would be useful for communicating/marketing OFN’s value, such as:

  • great testimonials from happy OFN users
  • mentions of OFN in media that others can then share
  • links to case studies being written up by others for OFN sites/marketing/social media
  • successful language - have you described OFN to someone in a way that really resonated, or found a good way to convince people of value of OFN, etc?
