Take Your Place


A Place at the Table is at the top of my “go-see” list. Brought to you by the creative souls behind Food Inc, the new documentary follows the lives of three people who struggle with food insecurity. Barbie, a young Philadelphia mother of two, fights to make ends meet and break the cycle of poverty. Rosie, an imaginative fifth-grader, tries to distract herself from hunger pangs as she grows up in rural Colorado. Tremonica, a bright Mississippi second-grader, struggles with health issues caused by the poor nutritional value of the food her mother provides.

With insights from a variety of experts including author Raj Patel, Top Chef’s Tom Colicchio and actor/activist Jeff Bridges, the film shines a spotlight on the harsh reality that nearly 50 million people in the United States don’t know where their next meal is coming from.
