“A Place at the Table” (2013)

Directed by Kristi Jacobson and Lori Silverbush

starring Jeff Bridges

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.

-Joe Neumaier, NY Daily News

“POWERFUL. More than an eye-opening portrayal of hunger in America, it’s also a call to action.”
-Boston Globe

“If another nation was doing this to our children, we’d be at war.”
-Jeff Bridges, Founder of the End Hunger Network

“The film explains with devastating simplicity why so many go hungry in a country with more than enough food to go round.”
-London Evening Standard

“The Sundance Film Festival is chock full of documentaries this year about the troubles besetting America … but A PLACE AT THE TABLE may rank AMONG THE MOST MOVING in that it tackles a seemingly straightforward, solvable problem: hunger in the United States.”
-LA Times
