From the creators of the book A Place at the Table: The Crisis of 49 Million Hungry Americans and How to Solve It comes the documentary film about how in the U.S fifty million people, one in four children don’t know where their next meal is coming from. The documentary examines the issue of hunger through the stories of three people struggling with food insecurity.

Barbie is a single Philadelphia mother who has from a child has been exposed to America’s poverty problem and is trying to provide a better life for her two children.

Rosie is a Colorado fifth-grader who often has to rely of friends and neighbours for her next meal, and as consequence has trouble concentrating in school.

Tremonica is a Mississippi second-grader whose asthma and health issues are exacerbated by the absent calories on her plate.

Ultimately this documentary shows us how hunger poses serious economic, social and cultural implications for American people, and that it could be solved once and for all, if the American public decides.

Ending poverty and making healthy food available and affordable is in the best interest of us all.
