Good with a video camera? Do some good with your video camera.

We need your help to discover and tell the stories of everyday heroes, Hunger All-Stars, in your community.

Great stories are unfolding all around us. Thoughtful, committed individuals across the country and in our backyards are giving of themselves and their time to keep our friends, family and neighbors from going hungry. Imagine the neighbor who has volunteered for 40 years to feed those in need without ever being noticed or recognized.  Or the child who raised money at the local mall after learning that some of his classmates were going hungry.

In association with we’re seeking short videos that tell the stories of the dedicated men, women and children working to eliminate hunger in your community.

  • The contest will consist of two phases. In Phase One, producers will create and submit their short films spotlighting a local food bank and the people in their communities who are fighting hunger. In Phase Two, members of the Tongal community will watch the videos to predict the winners.
  • Winning video producers will receive up to $2500 and a truckload of Tyson food products (35,000 pounds) donated to their local community food bank.
  • Films should run one to three minutes in length and should exemplify how people make a difference by dedicating time to hunger relief.
  • Tyson Foods will use the winning videos on its web site, blog and other Internet properties to promote the work of Feeding America and Hunger Relief All-Stars across the country.

    Wow, hats off to Tyson. I certainly wish more big food companies (and restaurants, and businesses in general ….) would take their lead.

    THis story made me think of a story Vivienne sent us a while back, about an experience she had while working at a local food bank. A conversation with a woman there provided her with an “aha moment” – Vivienne realized how easily she could have been in the other woman’s shoes and felt both humbled and grateful. Powerful stuff.

    If you enjoy her story make sure to vote – winning videos will be featured in a Mutual of Omaha tv commercial.

    Hope you like the video. Have a great day.
