Finding 'A Place at the Table' For the Hungry

HERE’S something to chew on: millions in the United States suffer from food insecurity. Essentially, they may not get three squares and two snacks each day.

“A Place at the Table” examines hunger in this obscenely wealthy country through the experiences of three individuals who really don’t know where their next meal is coming from and have no guarantee that it will be a nutritious one.

Not only do directors Kristi Jacobson and Lori Silverbush spotlight the issue – talking with numerous hunger advocates and experts –  they go underneath to reveal some of the social and economic consequences of what is an obscenely solvable problem. (See video above).

The film continues to open in select theaters across the United States and is available on iTunes and On Demand.

”A Place at the Table is rated PG; visit to learn more about the film. Rx
