What a strange and traumatic time 2020 has been. The sole source of comfort art director Sharon Kendrick and I have found is in the meals that break up working from home from well...just generally being at home. What struck is that while food has brought us and so many people in America joy and comfort during time, there are hundreds of thousands of people facing food insecurity. Public school cafeterias have stepped up during the ongoing crisis and have become centers of nutrition for not just kids, but families and entire communities. There is still no federal funding plan to support them. And now, while lockdown is coming to a close in most parts of the country, the Trump administration is making it harder than ever for kids who face food insecurity to get the meals they need at schools near them. So we co-founded Soup Canvas, to raise money for Urban School Food Alliance, a national non-profit leading efforts to fund these food programs.
Soup canvas is a pandemic-born part virtual art installation and part art benefit committed to ending food insecurity.
