Hunger In America: ‘A Place At The Table

Bill Moyers interviews filmmaker Kristi Jacobsen and nutrition and public health advocate Dr. Mariana Chilton on their film "A Place at the Table" and how America and especially its government continue to ignore and hide food insecurity, obesity and malnutrition... in a word, hunger... despite the vastly greater human costs and monetary costs of allowing people, especially children, to suffer that hunger compared to the costs of establishing food security for everyone. Moyers, always an excellent interviewer, intersperses his insightful questions with well-chosen excerpts from the film. The segment is about an hour, and although I am prejudiced (hunger was an activist interest of my youth), I cannot think of a better way for you to spend an hour. Please give it a try.
