The Faces of Hunger Project is a collaborative photojournalism project between the Food and Agribusiness Institute of Santa Clara University and Second Harvest Food Bank. Through the portraits and stories collected at 15 of the more than 830 distribution sites, the project provides a glimpse of the complex and multi-faceted food environment in which the clients, volunteers, and staff navigate. The purpose of the project is to highlight Second Harvest's impact on the individuals served and the overall impact on our communities.
Over 1700 photographs were taken during the summer of 2010. Select images from the project will be on display during the annual Hunger Issues Forum on September 10, 2010. In November, a book including images and stories from the project will be available through the Second Harvest Food Bank.
