FACES OF HUNGER – 20182018-10-15T15:08:52+00:00

2018

The Faces of Hunger (FOH) Screening Kit is a digital film screening package for college students to get informed and take action about food issues worldwide. 

On October 16, 2018, in commemoration of World Food Day 2018 and in conjunction with Universities Fighting World Hungerwe are spurring a nationwide dialogue about the everyday realities that millions of Americans face. Through coordinated screenings of short films about food and hunger issues, we aim to reach and inspire students, our leaders in change. 

THE FILM COLLECTION

The 2018 film collection is comprised of 10 short films that show critical responses to the social and political structures surrounding food insecurity, quality and waste in the United States.

THE CAUSE

Human rights issues aren’t confined to developing countries.

In 2015, one in seven Americans experienced food insecurity; up to 40% of food produced in the United States goes uneaten every year; and because of the obesity rate, the current generation of children will be the first to live shorter lives than their parents.

In one of the world’s most developed countries, such food issues should not exist.

Through the FOH Film Festival we call upon filmmakers to explore solutions and shed light on this hidden reality.

OUR GOAL  is to reach, inspire, and motivate YOU, our future leaders in change.
