Why is food insecurity so common in Kern County, and what can people do to solve it? Those two questions are at the core of a new documentary called "INVISIBLE: The Unseen Faces of Hunger." The film was produced by members of Transitional Youth Mobilizing for Change, also known as TYM4Change, a nonprofit that creates opportunities for young people to address issues in their community. Valley Edition Host Kathleen Schock spoke with its executive director, Dixie King, along with two of the young filmmakers, Nicholas Hulsey and R. Amaya. 

 

The Fresno Center is getting ready for the holiday week ahead with a special turkey giveaway Monday. It’s the nonprofit’s latest effort to fight hunger during this pandemic.

What started as a monthly food distribution has now become a weekly event at the Fresno Center. It’s a lifeline for people like Wessly Sequeiros.

“These places that help us with the food help a lot since my wife is not working and I’m the only provider,” Sequeiros said.

Hunger is a big problem across America but especially here in the San Joaquin Valley. One of the local groups taking on the issue is FoodLink of Tulare County. The Exeter-based organization is dedicated to bridging the gap between between health and anti-hunger relief efforts.
