When we partnered with Denver Magazine, FOX 31 and The Deuce for our Faces of Hunger Photo Contest, we anticipated a hand-full of photographs depicting hunger in Colorado. We hoped the contest would bring to light an issue many of our neighbors don’t associate with on a local level. We did not anticipate the huge success this campaign was and continues to be.
The gallery event took place on September 2nd at Fat Tail Gallery and turned out to be an amazing evening for raising awareness regarding the issue of hunger in Colorado. 23 submitted photos were enlarged, courtesy of Fineline Graphics, and displayed on a huge white wall for guests to view as they entered the gallery. Many of the photographers and their friends and family were able to join us and see their work displayed. Katie Lienert and Joe Morahan were voted winners for the amateur and professional categories and are featured in the September issue of Denver Magazine (https://www.denvermagazine.com/
). Special thanks to all our event sponsors for making the night a huge success….Denver Magazine, Fat Tail Gallery, FOX 31, Sir Chocolate, Mortons The Steakhouse, Barefoot Wines, Vitamin Water, Fromage to Yours and Fineline Graphics.

The photo contest is complete, but the efforts of our partners continue. Denver Magazine continues to partner with us through other promotions and event support and FOX 31 remains a steady force in the fight against hunger. Due to their continuous coverage of FBR, our food and fund drives have more than doubled, compared to this time last year. The community heard the call to action and responded in force! What can we say…THANK YOU for everyone who contributed to the Faces of Hunger Campaign! Stay tuned to FOX 31 for ongoing coverage of faces of hunger in our community.
