I’ve been given the opportunity to tell the stories about the struggles of our country’s food workers, a group of people who fight each day to obtain basic human rights, like paid sick time off and livable wages. I hope to bring their stories to you by combing two of my passions: food advocacy and visual storytelling through photography and video.
Feeding The Giant is a documentary series made up of photo essays, videos, and audio stories. I’m honored to announce that the project has been selected for the Millennial Trains Project, an award-winning 501(c)3 non-profit organization that leads transcontinental train journeys for young innovators to explore America’s new frontiers. This August, I’ll be visiting Pittsburgh, Chicago, Kansas City, Albuquerque, and Los Angeles, where I will be interviewing restaurant workers, owners, and change advocates to create short visual series of their lives and their work.
In order to continue with Feeding The Giant, I need to raise $5,000 by June 1st. If my project is among the first 30 to reach this goal, all funds will go to MTP to help underwrite expenses associated with the journey. This project is about collectively amplifying these food workers voices, so please donate whatever you are able to by following this link.
Thanks in advance for your help, monetary or not. Your encouragement and positive vibes are just as important in my eyes. I hope to bring to you some powerful, human-centered storytelling.
