Dirs. Kristi Jacobson, Lori Silverbush. 2013, 84 mins. Though the U.S. is the wealthiest and most powerful nation in the history of the world, 50 million Americans—including 1.5 million New York City residents—live in homes that cannot afford enough food. Directors Jacobson and Silverbush examine this issue through the lens of three people who are struggling with food insecurity. Their stories are interwoven with insights from experts, ordinary citizens, and activists. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion featuring Coalition Executive Director Joel Berg, leading hunger advocates and community leaders.
