Food photos with a purpose

This food calendar might make you want to be a better person more than make you hungry. The North Texas Food Bank’s “Farm to Table” 2013 calendar features the work of photojournalist David Leeson, a Pullitzer Prize-winner who has contributed videos to the Advocate.

Leeson’s “thought-provoking” photographs, as a media release puts it, depict fresh produce and informational tidbits like “fresh produce distribution to rural areas increased by 57 percent in 2012″ and the North Texas Food Bank “distributes nearly 11,000 Food 4 Kids backpacks every week.”

The calendars cost about $20 and available at Central Market storesalong with North Texas Food Bank holiday cards ($25-$225).

Each calendar sale means 60 meals can be provided to North Texas neighbors.

Leeson’s work for the Advocate includes this time-lapse bike ride down the Santa Fe Trail.
