Watch: A Place at the Table

March 2, 2013

“A PLACE AT THE TABLE forcefully makes the case that hunger has serious economic, social and cultural implications for the nation.” — Julie Makinen, LA Times

 

In theaters, available on iTunes and On Demand March 1st

 

Fifty million people in the U.S.—one in four children—don’t know where their next meal is coming from. Directors Kristi Jacobson and Lori Silverbush examine the issue of hunger in America through the lens of three people struggling with food insecurity: Barbie, a single Philadelphia mother who grew up in poverty and is trying to provide a better life for her two kids; Rosie, a Colorado fifth-grader who often has to depend on friends and neighbors to feed her and has trouble concentrating in school; and Tremonica, a Mississippi second-grader whose asthma and health issues are exacerbated by the largely empty calories her hardworking mother can afford.
