A PLACE AT THE TABLE is an engrossing new film about an issue that affects us all, even those fortunate enough to never know hunger. It takes audiences on a riveting journey that will change forever how you think about democracy and show how we can end hunger quickly and effectively in America.

A PLACE AT THE TABLE was directed by Lori Silverbush and Kristi Jacobson, and executive produced by chef/restaurateur Tom Colicchio, in partnership with Participant Media (An Inconvenient Truth; Food, Inc.). It features leading experts, including actor and longtime activist Jeff Bridges, but its strength lies in the storytelling. The cameras follow three young people, Rosie, Barbie and Tremonica, whose unfolding lives illustrate poignantly the untold ramifications of food insecurity and malnutrition/obesity. Their stories, told in simple veritĂ© fashion, are going to change the national dialogue about hunger.
