The Working Hungry: Film Screening Mini Grants

The makers of The Working Hungry set out to collect and share the stories of three families, and through them represent the stories of more than 700,000 people across the state of Indiana who are food insecure. Most of these are working families, and their hunger is hidden from those around them.

In a time of low unemployment and food abundance, why is this happening – and what can be done? In The Working Hungry, you’ll meet three families to hear about the reality of hunger in Indiana, and what more could be done to truly end hunger.

Outreach efforts in support of this project are sparking conversation and action across the state through film viewings at big and small venues.

To assist with expenses, up to $500 is available to organizations interested in showing the film and hosting a panel discussion with the audience.
