A Place At the Table - One Nation. Underfed.

02/28/13

Fifty million people in the U.S.- one in four young children - live in households that don't have enough money for food that supports an active and healthy life. A very powerful new documentary, A Place at the Table, (premiering March 1st, 2013 in theaters, On Demand, and on iTunes) examines the issue of hunger through the eyes of people struggling with food insecurity.

The film interweaves these personal stories with insights from experts, ordinary citizens, and activists. We strongly urge everyone to watch this film to see the real faces of hunger in America today and to hear their stories. This films Executive Producer, Tom Colicchio, was a Guest Chef at JBJ Soul Kitchen and is an advocate for healthy lunches at schools. His wife Lori Silverbush Colicchio directed this film along with Kristi Jacobson.

The film calls on everyone to take their place at the table. Visit the A Place at the Table Take Part page today for more information on the film.

We hope you will see the film, spread the word, and take action. Together WE can make a difference…one SOUL at a time.
