Jornada, which means "day" or "journey" in Spanish, is a short documentary following a day in the life of volunteers at a food pantry during the pandemic. La Jornada is the largest food pantry in Flushing, Queens, providing food for 10,000 families across the borough each week. Angélica is one of 400 volunteers who keep the organization running, and our protagonist in the film. Through her eyes and others, we see the cost of what it takes to provide for the community during this time of need, in what was the epicenter of the epicenter of the U.S. coronavirus outbreak. The film is told in a combination of Spanish and English, with English subtitles.
