Food Tank, in partnership with Barr Mansion and Driscoll’s, recently hosted the All Things Food
Summit at SXSW. This episode of “Food Talk with Dani Nierenberg” features two conversations
from the event focused on activating people through the power of film. First, Ben Collier, CEO and Co-Founder of The Farmlink Project and Mike Meyer, Head of Advocacy for The Farmlink Project and a 5th Generation Cattle Rancher, sit down with Dani to discuss the documentary “Abundance,” which follows a group of college students who catalyze a national movement to end hunger in the United States. They discuss the early days of their food rescue efforts during the pandemic, launching and sustaining a movement, and what lies ahead when their work is only beginning to scratch the surface.

Then, filmmakers Rebecca and Josh Tickell talk with Dani about their new documentary
“Common Ground,” the followup to “Kiss the Ground.” They discuss how raising children
introduced a sense of urgency and new meaning to their work, a new era of documentary
filmmaking , and why sometimes, all it takes to make a difference is for one person to see a film.
