This documentary film explores hunger in America and illustrates how hunger poses serious economic, social and cultural implications for our nation. The film has a Colorado focus as one of the primary stories features Rosie, a Colorado fifth-grader who often has to depend on friends and neighbors to feed her, and has trouble concentrating in school because she’s hungry.
A discussion will follow the film and include local organizations and individuals involved in the fight against hunger.
50 million people in the U.S.—one in four children—don’t know where their next meal is coming from, despite our having the means to provide nutritious, affordable food for all Americans. “As we enter a season of holidays and family gatherings centered around our kitchen and dining room tables, this film allow us an opportunity to look at food insecurity and realize that we have the power to do something about healthy food access and the hunger problem in our own community and beyond.
