placetableComing to us from the producers of Food, Inc., Fast Food Nation, and An Inconvenient Truth, A Place at the Table,  focuses on three real Americans struggling with food insecurity. Click here to watch the trailer.

50 million people in the U.S.—including one in five children—don’t know where their next meal is coming from, despite our having the means to provide nutritious, affordable food for all Americans.  Ultimately, A Place at the Table shows us that although hunger poses serious economic, social and cultural implications for our nation,  it could be solved once and for all, if the American public decides—as they have in the past—that making healthy food available and affordable is in the best interest of us all.

Following the film, Food Bank Executive Director Andrew Morehouse will lead a panel discussion about domestic hunger with Representative Jim McGovern (D-MA, featured in the film and UMass Professor Julie Caswell.

Tickets are available now online at and at the Amherst Cinema box office.
