Give Thanks! A Place at The Table

I think I have said it once before but I will say it again...on a DAILY basis I see at LEAST ONE person who needs food more than I do.

So please WATCH - ACT -


A PLACE AT THE TABLE forcefully makes the case that hunger has serious economic, social and cultural implications for the nation." — Julie Makinen, LA Times

In theaters, available on iTunes and On Demand March 1st

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: Barbie, a single Philadelphia mother who grew up in poverty and is trying to provide a better life for her two kids; Rosie, a Colorado fifth-grader who often has to depend on friends and neighbors to feed her and has trouble concentrating in school; and Tremonica, a Mississippi second-grader whose asthma and health issues are exacerbated by the largely empty calories her hardworking mother can afford.
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.

For the first 100,000 tickets, downloads or book purchased during March 1-3, Plum Organics will donate one essential nutrition pouch to a baby or toddler.
