Icons Library

The Foodicons Collection is an extensive, open-source set of icons to explain key terms and principles that define global food systems, beginning with Challenge I: Food Foundations. Icons in additional thematic areas will be released throughout 2021. Designers can sign up here to join the next challenge. All work will be available at The Noun Project for free download as it is finalized.
Are you a designer interested in joining the challenge? Sign up here.

Additionally, entrants whose icons are accepted into the final icon family, posted to The Noun Project, grant a royalty-free, perpetual, non-exclusive, worldwide right Foodicons.org and those who download the icons from The Noun Project to edit, adapt, modify, reproduce, promote, publish, and otherwise use the entrant’s submission and/or its contents in any way and in any media for educational, promotional, and/or any other purposes (including commercial uses), under the Creative Commons 4.0 BY license, without having to seek permission from, and without consideration or notification to any participant or any third party.
