Hidden Hunger: Storybooth


Community engagement specialist Jesikah Maria Ross led a collaboration with the American Academy of Pediatrics Northern California, Grow Sacramento, Sacramento Hunger Coalition, and the Sacramento Regional Food Systems Collaborative to create new platforms for community members to create and share stories about food insecurity in Sacramento County.

Together, they launched a mobile story booth that visited food banks and community clinics around Sacramento to record the personal experiences of people on the front lines of food insecurity. Maria Ross and River City Food Bank Executive Director Eileen Thomas join us to explain what they discovered in the stories they collected from people around the Sacramento region.
