"As important and eye-opening a documentary as you’ll see this year... [A] terrific call to action..."

-Joe Neumaier, NY Daily News

-Mary F. Pols, Time Magazine

"BEAUTIFULLY SHOT AND EDITED. THE CRAFT IS OF A VERY HIGH LEVEL"

-Deseret News

"A PLACE AT THE TABLE is an ENGAGING AND ENRAGING movie that will enlist supporters for its cause."

-Toronto Film Scene

"How can you be both hungry and obese? It's a paradox that more and more people in the United States are beginning to understand, and a question that's convincingly answered in Finding North, A PROVOCATIVE DOCUMENTARY about hunger within America's own borders."

About The Film

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.
