SYNOPSIS

Fifty million people in the U.S. don’t know where their next meal is coming from and of these, one in four are children. 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 paltry empty calories her hardworking mother can afford.

 

Ultimately, A PLACE AT THE TABLE demonstrates that hunger poses a serious long term economic, social and cultural threat to our national security. This is a dire situation that can be resolved once and for all if the American public decides – as they have in the past – that making healthy food available and affordable is in the best interest of us all.
