The Working Hungry documentary film screening and discussion
to address the growing crisis of food insecurity
One of more than 35 statewide showings and discussions taking place this year to bring attention to hunger in Indiana


Indianapolis – A new documentary film, The Working Hungry, will be shown on June 11th at Old Bethel United Methodist Church (7995 E. 21st Street, Indianapolis, IN) and followed by a discussion about food insecurity and hunger in our community and Indiana.

The Working Hungry is a 30-minute film built around the stories of three families and through them, the stories of more than 700,000 people across the state of Indiana. Most of these are working families, and their hunger is hidden from those around them. 


The compelling documentary asks why, in a time of low unemployment and food abundance, is food insecurity and hunger so prevalent and what can be done. The Working Hungry will dive deep into the reality of food insecurity in Indiana and what more could be done to destigmatize the conversation, more clearly understand underlying causes, and truly end hunger.


Community leaders participating in the panel discussion include Dave Miner, Tyler Gough and Arin Schellenberg


Throughout 2023, screenings of The Working Hungry, and relevant discussions will take place statewide, hosted by over 30 organizations. Information about all upcoming showings can be found at Indy Hunger Network.

The Working Hungry film and community screenings are made possible by Ascension St. Vincent, Indy Hunger Network, and with additional support from Dave and Robin Miner, Steve and Cindy Gillman, and Brandt and Christine Lawson.
