Watch Hungry in the West End

Our award-winning (Best Documentary, 2013 Los Angeles International Web Series Festival) multimedia exploration of senior hunger in Providence’s West End community includes an eight-part video documentary series produced, directed and narrated by AARP Rhode Island’s John Martin and Web-based stories by Jody McPhillips.

Hungry in the West End, made possible by a generous grant from AARP Foundation Drive to End Hunger, is part of AARP Rhode Island’s wide-ranging community engagement effort. The video series is closed-captioned in Spanish.
