“Hunger is Unacceptable” Photos of the Week
July 31, 2008 § 1 Comment
Thank you Central Texas! In the past week, you’ve amazed us with your creativity. With such a great first week response, we’ve decided to pick two photos that we find inspiring, and that truly communicate the spirit of the campaign. One photo is of a hunger advocate, and one is client in need of food.
This week’s client photo was submitted by CAFB’s Agency Relations Director, Karla Cantu. Karla took this photo at Austin Baptist Chapel, one of our 350+ Partner Agencies directly serving the hungry. One of two soup kitchens in downtown Austin, Austin Baptist Chapel serves between 300 and 400 meals at lunch each day. And yes, they make a tasty soup! If you’re looking for an afternoon of volunteering in central Austin, check them out. With lines often wrapping around the building, they can surely use the help.
Our hunger advocate photo of the week comes from Cirstan Hobbs, owner of Scarlet Red Salon. Hairstylist to Georgetown’s fashionistas, Cirstan is known for thinking outside the box, or in this case, the cardboard box. Friend and in-house tattoo artist, Aaron, “tattoos” her sign where she knows it can hurt the most to be hungry. (Yes, it’s fake).
So, keep those signs coming. We love to see your passion.
