Documenting Hunger
30 May 2017 | by kz917-1See all my reviews

A Place at the Table is a documentary that looks at hunger in America. The film follows several families and their struggles to fill their plates day after day. Band-aid fixes are just not cutting it. The problem of hunger in America is just getting worse. The film is a sobering look at the reality that many Americans face.
