"Powerful. More than an eye-opening portrayal of hunger in America, it’s also a call to action." -Boston Globe

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.

Join us to watch the film and hear a panel discussion between local leaders who are working on food insecurity in our community.
