'Networking Hunger' a film by Megan Schmidt
This 17 minute documentary investigated the efforts to alleviate hunger in Easton, Pennsylvania in 2016. While the issue remains largely invisible in modern day America, this short film reveals the ongoing struggle of those without reliable food sources and the collaboration of Easton area community members to help address this issue.
“The project is my Film and Media Studies Capstone and was completed in December 2016. I am from Pottstown, Pennsylvania and am a Lafayette graduate with double major in Film and Media Studies and Engineering Studies."
During her career at Lafayette College, Easton, Pennsylvania, Megan earned many awards and accolades and participated regularly in community service projects. THANK YOU Megan for highlighting the ways that Easton Hunger Coalition has provided community connections around the issue of food insecurity, nutrition education and food recovery.
