Food Bank in Culiacan

Miguel Angel Victoria Fotógrafo

This photograph corresponds to Hambreton (Hungerthon in English) 2015, annual fundraising event of the Culiacan Food Bank where the goal set to surpass this year was possible, with the total raised being 67,413 kg (14,8620.22 lbs.) of nonperishable food, and in which 70 educational institutions and 30 companies from Culiacan participated.


In Sinaloa, in 1999, on the initiative of Ricardo Bon, Alberto Coppel, Allan Sullivan, Luis Amarante and Martha Echavarria, the Culiacan Food Bank emerges, which, in 2003, becomes a Private Assistant Institution, to address famine problems around Culiacan and Navolato, Sinaloa.

In1967, in the city of Phoenix, Arizona, Mr. Jhon Van Engel created the first Food Bank of the World; there are currently Food Banks throughout the United States as well as in several countries in Europa and Asia.
In Mexico, the concept of the Food Bank emerged in 1991 due to the concern of a Sinaloa inhabitant, born in Culiacan, named Ricardo Bon Echeverria. The project arose one day in which he observed that the tenants of the Abastos Market in Guadalajara, Jalisco were dwindling and throwing away, day after day, a great
amount of food which was no longer marketable but still edible, when he had found on more than one occasion that there were many people asking for food aid at that same location.
The first Food Bank officially appeared in 1991 in Guadalajara, Jalisco, although some similar institutions already existed in 1989 in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon and Saltillo, Coahuila, which did not have the name Food Bank but practically carried the same work that a Food Bank would. One by one they appeared in the whole country until completing what up to 2015 were 61 Food Banks, each of them emerging from the Private Initiative.
Currently, the Culiacan Food Bank is presided over by Federico Bazua Lopez and directed by Arturo Torres Santillan.

How this virtual tour was made

The equipment used to perform virtual tour are the following:

  • Nikon D810 DSLR Camera
  • Lens Sigma 8 mm Fisheye
  • Nodal Ninja NN4 Tripod Head
  • Manfrotto 190 Carbon Fiber Tripod
  • Remote Switch

The software processing of the image was

  • Lightroom to process RAW files
  • PTGui for stitching images
  • Photoshop general and local settings
  • PanoTour Pro for generating virtual tour
When spherical photography is done in groups of people, it is important to do the 4 shots the fastest possible at a high speed to avoid that, with the movement, PTGui cannot perform the photo stitching or the images come out incomplete or duplicated. This tour took place at noon and the white canvas tent helped as a diffusor for the light, which is why there are no hard shadows. It was a nice experience to see the enthusiasm of this group of volunteers who worked intensively on this important event, “Hambreton 2015”. The Culiacan Food Bank is an example of how, when we as citizens join forces, we can attain great achievements for the benefit of our community.
