Meeting the ongoing challenges of food security and hunger in Indiana - Second Harvest will present The Working Hungry a 30-minute film built around the stories of three families and through them the stories of more than 7,000 people across the state of Indiana. Most of these are working families, and their hunger is hidden from those around them. The compelling documentary asks why in a time of low unemployment and food abundance is food security and hunger so prevalent and what can be done. The Working Hungry will dive deep into the reality of food insecurity in Indiana, and what could be done to destigmatize the conversation more clearly understand underlying causes, and truly end hunger. After the film presentation, Second Harvest will discuss what is being done in our community to address food insecurity and self-sufficiency through programs like Forward STEP, Big Idea, Operation Full Pack, and Senior Safety Net.
