Hunger in the Heartland| 27mins
Director: Thomas Sawyer | Producer: Deb Engle and Thomas Sawyer
Focus Years: 2014 | Country: United States
Hunger in the Heartland was created to help educate Iowans about the goal of alleviating childhood hunger by 2015â€”and the many ways people throughout the state are working toward that goal in their own communities. The video will inspire others to get involved by tapping into or creating a network wherever they live.
We'll put a face on the hunger issue by telling the stories of families who are dealing with food insecurity. In addition, we'll address these primary topic areas:
â€¢ Access to food
â€¢ The link between obesity and hunger
â€¢ The impact of hunger on child development
â€¢ The role of gardens (community, school, church) in alleviating hunger
â€¢ Government and extension services
â€¢ Food rescue programs
We hope this program and the accompanying Resource Guide will serve as a template for other states to follow to alleviate childhood hunger in their own communities.
