Hunger and food insecurity pose a deep threat to our nation. A Place at the Table shows they can 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.
From Participant Media, the people who brought you "Food, Inc” and Waiting for "Superman" the documentary, scheduled for March 1 release and the companion Participant Guide offer an eye-opening exploration of how we can end hunger in America, maybe even before the 2015 date set by President Barack Obama. The book is based on the documentary but it can be read as a stand-alone look at the hunger problem.”
