More than 100 people participated in the 4th annual Portraits of Hunger photography competition, which took a frank, fresh, and often endearing look at the faces of Central Florida’s hungry.
The winners were announced in at a Showcase Party at the Enzian Theater with top honors going to Cynthia B. Slaughter for her winning photo titled “First Fruit.”
Sponsored by the Second Harvest Food Bank, the judges included Dave Krepcho, President of Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida, Henry Maldonado, President of Enzian Theater, and Josh Garrick, Fine Art and Culture Writer for a series of news and on-line venues.
While the photo competition has ended, the hunger many Central Floridians face has not. Perhaps as you go into the upcoming holiday season you might keep such unfortunates in mind… it is often just the wrong circumstances or bad luck that can mean whether or not a child has a meal to eat one day or the next. You can make a difference!
