This 1-hour documentary brings you first-person stories of people coping with food insecurity in one of the country's richest agricultural regions. Hidden Hunger explores the daily struggles of children, adults and seniors who live in overlooked neighborhoods of south Sacramento, where the stigma of poverty and hunger is high.

Hidden Hunger explores two neighborhoods: Meadowview and The Avenues, where lack of transportation limits access to affordable, healthy fresh food.  The project raises awareness of the challenges facing those who live in the these food deserts and examines local solutions to alleviate hunger.
