In 2015, a friend invited us to a monthly meeting called Food Desert Solutions. At this meeting were people from different backgrounds, organizations, and walks of life all coming together to discuss solutions to food insecurity in Dallas. We didn’t realize how dire the situation was only a few miles from where we live and work. As we learned more about the disparity in our city we though to ourselves…WTF?! We decided to tell the story and start making a documentary. We couldn’t believe we didn’t know about this before and couldn’t allow others in our community to remain ignorant to this solvable issue. We started researching, meeting more people, and documenting the stories.
We are telling this story not only to raise awareness, but to also create action. Our goal is to work with leaders in food desert communities to tell the story authentically and make the biggest impact possible.
This project doesn’t just focus on the problem. It’s a raw look at many solutions from many organizations and people. We hope it motivates and connects people to action and serves as a blueprint to other food deserts in the US and beyond.
We have aligned with Get Healthy Dallas, a local non-profit (501c3) that is earmarking the funds for this documentary project. To make a tax deductible donation please click here:
