“A Place at the Table”
All over the nation, an estimated 50 million men, women, and children are struggling to find a place at the table in the battle against hunger.
“A Place at the Table” (2013), a documentary about hunger in the United States, shares the struggle of these working-class individuals and families on film. The film also sheds light on new, feasible solutions to ending hunger that we can all put into practice immediately in our communities.
“A Place at the Table” is the brainchild of Kristi Jacobson and Lori Silverbush. The film was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. Watch them on the Daily Show with John Stewart.
The documentary opens Friday, March 1 in select theaters across the nation and will be available iTunes.
Jacobson’s television credits include the Emmy Award-nominated “Colonial House” (PBS) and “Tanya Tucker: Country Rebel” (A&E Biography). She is the founder of a production company, Catalyst Films. Silverbush wrote, directed and produced “On the Outs” (2004).
