ArtPrize Entry Reveals the Faces of Hunger


One in six Americans struggles with hunger. Yet it’s a problem that’s too often overlooked.

That’s why Feeding America West Michigan is taking the conversation about hunger to ArtPrize this fall. We’ve partnered with National Geographic photographer Joel Sartore to bring 30 portraits of food-insecure Americans to this public art competition in downtown Grand Rapids.

Sartore’s photos are on display September 21-October 9 in the DeVos Place Skywalk.

Take Action

Once you’ve seen Joel Sartore’s Feeding America series, don’t stop there. Get involved! Here are just a few ways to take action during Hunger Action Month and beyond:


You can bring attention to hunger by voting for Joel Sartore during ArtPrize. Visit to register.


Roll up your sleeves and volunteer with us. Every hour you spend sorting and repacking food can send 165 meals to your neighbors in need. Sign up.


A little generosity goes a long way. It goes even further right now because, from September 13 to October 11, Weingartz is doubling all online gifts, meaning that every dollar provides eight meals. Give now.
