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. Ultimately, A Place at the Table shows us how hunger poses serious economic, social and cultural implications for our nation, and that it could be solved 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. The co-directors, Lori Silverbush and Kristi Jacobson joins us for a conversation on the causes and solutions to this frustrating crisis.
“The film explains with devastating simplicity why so many go hungry in a country with more than enough food to go round.” — London Evening Standard
“The Sundance Film Festival is chock full of documentaries this year about the troubles besetting America… but A PLACE AT THE TABLE may rank AMONG THE MOST MOVING in that it tackles a seemingly straightforward, solvable problem: hunger in the United States.” — LA Times
“How can you be both hungry and obese? It’s a paradox that more and more people in the United States are beginning to understand, and a question that’s convincingly answered in Finding North, A PROVOCATIVE DOCUMENTARY about hunger within America’s own borders.” — Press+1
