This public information campaign and photography series documents some of the "food heroes" of the Inland Empire—a region in Southern California that is one of the nation's largest food deserts.

By creating community gardens, nutrition education programs, and food accessibility resource-sharing networks, Jorge, Prime, and Yen have become pillars of strength, generosity, and hope in their communities.
