A Place at the Table description:
This film addresses the fact that 50 million Americans – 1 in 4 children – don’t know where their next meal is coming from. A Place At The Table tells the powerful stories of three such Americans, who maintain their dignity even as they struggle just to eat. In a riveting journey that will change forever how you think about the hungry, A Place At The Table shows how the issue could be solved forever, once the American public decides -as they have in the past- that ending hunger is in the best interests of us all.
