Additional details: The series We Are Very Hungry documents conversations with local food producers and buyers in San Francisco. In direct reaction to the impersonal surveillance of our food-buying habits through barcoded grocery keytags, We Are Very Hungry is an effort to listen and pay attention to what San Franciscans are hungry for.
