Food is a basic human right. Food production and consumption effects on the environment are our responsibility. We are taking a critical look at the social and political structures surrounding food insecurity, quality and waste globally and in the US.
Globally, people living in poverty in developing countries often spend 60-80% of their income on food. Americans spend less than 10%. Over 1 billion people suffer from starvation and undernourishment worldwide and approximately 1,6 billion people from overeating and obesity. Conflict is a major driver of hunger - 489 million of 815 million undernourished people and 122 million of 155 million stunted children live in countries affected by conflict.
In America, 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 called upon filmmakers to explore solutions and shed light on this hidden reality.
The Faces of Hunger (FOH) KIT is a digital film screening package for college students to get informed and take action about food issues.
The FOH KIT contains:
tools to help promote FOH in your school
literature on food issues
this year’s film collection
Palms for Life will work with Universities Fighting World Hunger to reach, inspire, and motivate young people, our future leaders in change.
It’ll take about 1 minute to register your school organization to have access to the FOH Screening KIT:
