Hunger is often documented as being a problem confined to the 'third world'. But each year, 50 million Americans also struggle to survive.
In summer 2010, I travelled to the United States to investigate the plight of food poverty in the world's richest country. The documentary is set in San Antonio, one of the most impoverished cities in the Deep South, and tells the story of the 4 million Texans who are living (literally) on the bread line.
The film was produced as part of my MA International Journalism degree at University College Falmouth. The documentary was partially updated in August 2011 to reflect the growing prevalence of food insecurity in Texas and the wider United States.
The film is part funded by The Gareth Jones Memorial Travelling Scholarship 2011, awarded by the University of Wales.
Any comments are greatly appreciated.
