Let’s bring this discussion to the breakfast table by: • Encouraging conversation through striking stories and visuals that demand to be shared • Inspiring individuals who have first hand experience of food insecurity to speak out about their struggles • Showcasing works by socially conscious filmmakers

Freeze your leftover lemons and limes for waste-free ice cubes.

The best way to do it is to cut it into chunks or slices before freezing! As they defrost in your drink you can then squeeze out all the good vitamins and flavour!

If you’d like to save the juice or the zest for another day, grate or squeeze as necessary and place in an ice cube tray in the freezer - it’s then ready to use when a recipe calls for it!

Many vegetable stalks and leaves are thrown away every day but most of the time they contain the same if not more nutrients and vitamins as the parts we are used to eating! Broccoli stalks can be used in the same way you are using the florets, just peel any hard skin from the stem and cook!

What vegetables are you cooking/eating today?

Dehydrating oranges for Christmas decorations! Such a fun, easy activity and they can last for years!

Slice your oranges (or any citrus fruit will work!), pat dry, and put them in an oven at 100C/210F for 2.5-3 hours, flipping every 30 minutes or so until dried out.

You can add natural twine to hang them up on your tree, make them into a garland, or add them to a wreath!

After Christmas if you don’t wish to keep them, you can leave them out for the birds or compost them! ✨

Our Story

Faces of Hunger (FOH) is dedicated to increasing awareness of food security issues in the United States of America and abroad through film. We are looking for critical discussion and responses to the social and political structures surrounding food insecurity, quality and waste. FOH was created by Palms for Life Fund, a NYC based non-profit that works globally with organizations on-the-ground to provide access to food, water, education, and sanitation. We have set up mobile libraries for streetchildren in Ecuador, brought literacy to undermined women farmers in Burkina Faso, and built toilets in Nicaragua to improve school sanitation. With a grant from the European Union, we are now providing sustainable, quality services to the most vulnerable children in Swaziland. With regards to the United States, human rights issues aren’t confined to developing countries. In 2015, one in seven Americans experienced food insecurity; up to 40% of food produced in the United States goes uneaten every year; and because of the obesity rate, the current generation of children will be the first to live shorter lives than their parents. In one of the world’s most developed countries, such food issues should not exist. Through FOH we call upon students and filmmakers to explore solutions and shed light on this hidden reality.
