Hunger in Focus is a photo project intended to give a voice to those who are struggling with food insecurity in Denton, TX. There are over 90,000 people considered food insecure in Denton County, over 30,000 of these are children. These people could be your neighbor, family or friend. Seven participants were given digital cameras as a method to express themselves, giving real images and their own word to a topic that can be easily stereotyped. Some are homeless who volunteer everytdayto help others like themselves, many are highly educated who have fallen on hard times, some disabled, all are dedicated to help raise awareness.
Special thanks to Our Daly Bread, Vision Ministries and Denton Community Food Pantry for their help and support with this project and for providing so much support to those in need.
