49 million people in the U.S. - one in four children - don't know where their next meal is coming from. A Place at the Table examines this issue with the personal and engaging stories of three people facing food insecurity: a single mother in Philadelphia, a Colorado second-grader who often has to depend on friends and neighbors to feed her, and a Mississippi student whose asthma is exacerbated by a lack of good nutrition. Their stories are interwoven with insights from experts, ordinary citizens, and activists like Top Chef's Tom Colicchio and Oscar-winning actor Jeff Bridges. This documentary encourages us to explore the ways that making healthy food available and affordable is in the best interest of us all.
*Friday, May 31st FREE screening presented in collaboration with the Sundance Institute. Director Kristi Jacobson will introduce the film and participate in the post screening discussion with the Utah Food Bank, Christian Center of Park City, and the YMCA of Northern Utah. Discussion will be moderated by Leslie Thatcher.
