NPR: Docuumentary is 'A Call to Action on Hunger'

A Place at the Table is getting some very nice reviews in some prominent sites. One of the latest comes from Allison Aubrey from National Public Radio or NPR. I especially like the title that Ms. Aubrey and her editors picked for the review. "A Call to Action on Hunger."

Here are some excerpts:

I attended a screening of the film - along with a panel discussion with the producers and folks from Participant Media (the people behind Food Inc.). Judging from the reaction of the audience, the film works.

The bottom line, according to hunger advocate Billy Shore of Share Our Strength: "Childhood hunger in this nation is a solvable problem." Shore says we have enough food and good nutrition programs.

Participant Media, which helped embolden the food movement with Food, Inc., is hoping that the film serves another call to action. They've launched a website that will serve as a hub for for all sorts of hunger-related advocacy. And groups including Bread for the World, Feeding America, FRAC and Share Our Strength are all represented.
