Fifty million Americans—including one out of every four kids—don't know where their next meal is coming from. That's equivalent to every man, woman and child in the 25 smallest states plus the District of Columbia struggling with hunger on a daily basis.
To shine a light on this hidden American crisis, university students from Austin, Texas, and Palo Alto, California, created short videos exploring the issue of hunger in their communities. It's all part of The Creative Activist Network (CAN)—a new partnership between Students of the World and Participant Media—TakePart's parent company.
All of the videos were entered into a competition, with the public voting on the winner. Check out “What is Hunger?” a stop-motion animation and poem inspired by interviews with hunger survivors in the Austin area.
