See a film that explores hunger's economic, social and cultural impact on our nation, and that it could be solved once and for all, if the American public decides to make healthy food available and affordable to all. Directors Kristi Jacobson and Lori Silverbush takes audiences into the homes of families with food insecurity — a single Philadelphia mother who grew up in poverty, a Colorado fifth-grader who often has to depend on friends and neighbors to feed her and has trouble concentrating in school; and a Mississippi second-grader whose asthma and health issues are exacerbated by the largely empty calories her hardworking mother can afford. The film also shares insights from sociologist Janet Poppendieck, author Raj Patel and nutrition policy leader Marion Nestle; Pastor Bob Wilson and teachers Leslie Nichols and Odessa Cherry; and activists such as Witness to Hunger’s Mariana Chilton, Top Chef’s Tom Colicchio and Oscar-winning actor Jeff Bridges. The film’s original music is by Grammy and Academy Award-winner T Bone Burnett and The Civil Wars, who recorded two songs for the film’s soundtrack.
