Editorial Reviews

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.

I hope everyone who can, sees this movie.
M. A. Young
This excellent documentary provides a truthful presentation of the food & wage issues that our country faces, and also provides solutions to this shameful problem.
M. Bettencourt
We pray for the day that we will go out of business, because no one needs our help.

I have been waiting for this to premier. I am the director of an emergency food program. The pantry feeds several area families each week and the need continues to grow. We pray for the day that we will go out of business, because no one needs our help. In the meantime, I am grateful that artists put together documentaries like this. Our communities can be so segregated, that the rich can't begin to relate to the poor. When we solicit for donations, we have had people tell us that there are no hungry in our town. This film raises awareness regarding the responsibility that we have toward one another. We are to care for those who can't help themselves. The other day at the pantry, I spoke with a guest who had recently lost her job and was forced to turn to the food pantry for help. The kicker was she was very well-versed on the issue of hunger-insecurity. Before she fell on hard times, she worked with local food banks and pantries. Now she needed to visit one herself. They say we are all a paycheck or two away. The speakers in the film were right. The food pantries and food banks cannot and should not be the answer for hungry families in this country. We need to be considered temporary help. We need to encourage the government to responsibly fund legislature that would support families who can't quite make ends meet. Like the one gentleman said, if feeding the hungry isn't the priority, he doesn't know what is. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

This film is important. It shines a light on hunger in America. There just isn't enough support for those who need it. The Government should step up the programs to help people in this nation have healthy and nutritious meals. The film talks about food stamps and school programs. The film failed to illustrate exactly how education could be changed. There was a teacher passing around a melon, but that's not going to be enough. Schools need their own gardens.

This isn't a place for a rant. Watch this film. Start thinking about how you and I can end hunger. Meanwhile, put pressure on Government to make sure kids aren't starving. Mention that sugar isn't food while you have them on the phone.

A very profound documentary! I thought I was aware of the hunger problem in this country. I certainly was not. This film should be mandatory viewing for each and every citizen. Well done! I only hope changes will be made!

Format: DVD
Hunger is a very important cause in America and this video provides a lot of great information on it. It plays a very important role in helping to mobilize us all to fight for justice. It's shows how America's record in responding is shameful, which may be painful to see, but it's important that we face it.

My purpose in writing is to point out that it spreads myths about the biggest issues in the US Farm Bill. These are widespread, so most reader likely won't have heard of any of this. There are 2 main issues related to hunger that are big farm commodity issues. One is that of finding money to pay for more food stamps and related programs. The second is the way that low farms prices subsidize the junk food industry, not with government checks, but with prices for ingredients that are below fair trade or living wage standards, or even below zero (ie. 1981-2006) vs full costs. (Meaning that farmers got a wage equivalent, but lost money on the investment of their money in their land, facilities, machinery, livestock, etc.) On the first issue, the film suggests taking money away from farm subsidies, as they are correlated with bad things for food (cheap junk food ingredients, fostering bad food). That scientific correlation only applies for the years when farm prices fell AND there were farm subsidies. There is zero correlation for the years 1953-1961, and zero to 1964 for cotton, and to 1977 for rice and to 1998 for soybeans, as there were no subsidies. On the second point, we find, then, that subsidies are not at all the cause of cheap farm prices. Well, do food stamps cause low minimum wages? No. Subsidies to the victims (the poor, or farmers) don't cause the exploitation. So the video gives false analysis and false solutions.

This book and film are must read, must see.
As for the issue of hunger and malnutrition in the US, I've worked at various feeding programs including City Harvest. I'm also a single mom. Ive been on food stamps. And I know that the issue of hunger and malnutrition/child obesity is entwined with the issue of female poverty and the status of women . Divorce laws that leave women with a drop in socioeconomic status, lower female wages, and a minimum wage that hasnt kept pace with the cost of living combine to create a situation where single mothers are often working more than one job, with little time to shop and cook healthy meals. or to afford the ingredients, or to afford the neighborhoods where the ingredients are sold. These women arent just poor or stretched financially, they are stretched for time as well. Soup kitchens and food pantries help but not really-- the food is usually salty, starchy, and fatty at a soup kitchen and pantries stock canned goods and packaged processed food. What these families need are Meals on Wheels, healthy prepared meals that are easy to reheat and serve. The Meals on Wheels program has had solid success in improving the nutrition of seniors. I propose that we do the same for poor families now.
