After winning the award at TINFF, Director and Writer Christine Hann took to social media to share this message:

“Getting into film festivals and then winning an award was incredible. What is the most important though, is the reason we made this film in the first place. It’s an opportunity to put a spotlight on food insecurity. This is a community issue as more and more people are relying on the services of food banks. If you are able to, please support your local food banks.”

“We appreciate being able to share our message through different audiences. We hope it brings some insight and perspective on this topic.”
