Movies That Matter Explores Hunger in America

On Tuesday, December 16, A Place at the Table will be screened at the UUFDC at 4:30 pm. Please bring a donation of a non-perishable, healthy food item for the local food pantry in Sister Bay.

Hunger. It isn’t just a problem for starving children in a distant third world country. It’s a very real issue for many people here in the United States, the wealthiest nation in the world. Fifty million people in the United States – including one in four children – suffer from hunger and do not get enough to eat on a regular basis to be healthy and active. This film follow three families struggling with food insecurity and ultimately shows us how hunger and obesity pose serious economic, social and cultural implication for our nation and how food access issues could be solved once and for all if the American public decides – as we have in the past – that making healthy food available and affordable is in all of our best interests.
