Chew on this

‘Tis the season to be well fed! With the holidays upon us and festivities happening again, we’ve got celebrations and feasts on the brain. Food is how we fuel our bodies, but it’s also a way for us to connect with others. Our artists in particular have a lot of personal feelings about eating, as food sensitivities, fixations, aversions, and textural issues are big in our neurodiverse community. 


We hope you’re hungry for this collection of works, which celebrates mealtime and food in its many delicious forms.

Project Onward believes we can inspire change by using art to promote empathy and reduce the stigma of mental illness and developmental disabilities. We seek to improve the self-image of artists by emphasizing the social and economic value of their work.


You can directly contribute to this belief and help improve the lives of each Project Onward artist by purchasing their work. Our online shop is open 24/7, and half of the sale for each original piece goes directly to the artist.
