A Place at the Table looks at the economic and cultural impact of hunger in America and at possible solutions to a problem plaguing 50 million people in the U.S, one in four of whom are children. Interviews with the host of "Top Chef," Tom Colicchio, and Jeff Bridgeswho has been active in anti-hunger organizations for many years, and the working poor document this shameful topic.

"As important and eye-opening a documentary as you'll see this year, A Place at the Table makes it impossible to think of hunger as merely another symptom of a shredded social safety net."  Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News

"The filmmakers vividly illustrate the power and depth of the long-spiraling problem of "food insecurity" by immersing us in the hardscrabble lives of a cross section of our nation's poor."  Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times

"The problem, as Table shows, isn't that the next meal never comes. It's that when it arrives, too often it is filled with empty calories."  Michael O'Sullivan, The Washington Post
