Hungry Kate, an animated short subject that tells the story of how the Arkansas Foodbank is fighting hunger, is available for viewing!
With a catchy acoustic guitar soundtrack. the video tells the story of the hypothetical Kate, whose father's layoff sets off a troubling series of consequences, from the family falling into debt, losing their home through foreclosure and eventually having to choose between basic necessities like rent and food. The bottom line is that Kate and her family are hungry until they begin visiting their local food bank.
Kate represents the 90,000 children in central and south Arkansas who, through no fault of their own, don't know where their next meal is coming from.
Hungry Kate is recommended for viewing by school and church groups, civic organizations and individuals wishing to know more about how to meet the needs of the many thousands of hungry people in Arkansas.
The project was developed in partnership with the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank and the internet marketing firm Joint Effort Marketing.
