Hunger-Free MN

Hunger-Free Minnesota, a statewide initiative to fight hunger, asked us to create a short piece to help launch their $40 million campaign. Together we agreed that the film should be less about facts and figures and more about the stories of real people needing food assistance in the state. Our idea was to create something beautiful that would express our shared humanity and connection. We hope we succeeded.

Filmed in May 2011, we interviewed people at three food shelves across Minnesota – one outside the metro area in St. Paul Park, one in northern Minnesota in Duluth, and one in southern Minnesota in Rochester.

We were fortunate that one of our favorite musicians, the talented Mason Jennings, agreed to let us use two of his songs in the film. Please, drop us a line and let us know what you think about the film. Thanks for watching.
