Using the Unique Influence of a Local Food Space in Activating Narratives to Shift Community Perspectives and Policy and Stir Action on Poverty

Three Sisters Kitchen, which is a non-profit community food space in New Mexico in the U.S., along with a network of partner organizations and artists, will produce films and other creative media tools capturing the diverse realities of individuals living in poverty in Albuquerque, using food access and security as a means to explore the structural and historic barriers to economic opportunity. Food both connects people and provides economic opportunities. It is an interwoven theme in the lives of many people living in poverty, such as those trying to feed a family on minimum wage and small farmers unable to compete with large growers who are given federal subsidies. Working with their community partners, Three Sisters Kitchen will use media tools to create content to spark community conversations about structural and historic barriers to economic mobility and develop strategies for using the stories to organize for narrative and policy change in support of economic opportunity.
