Why is it that fifty million people in the US, including one in five children, don’t know where their next meal is coming from? A Place at the Table is one film that shows us the serious implications hunger poses for our nation and also offers possible solutions.
We all know where we can buy food, but do we know where our food actually comes from and what’s in it? The award-winning documentary Food, Inc. lifts the veil on our nation’s food industry, exposing what’s been hidden from us all along.
What about the people who are behind the foods that we love – who are they and how did they go from dreamer to doer? Dark Rye, introduces us to people who turned a tasty passion into a reality.
This September, Pivot TV is featuring an entire month of “Food for Thought” programming that explores these types of issues and more. Every Wednesday and Sunday, they’ll be taking a close look at our food system through films like Pressure Cooker, the documentary profiles three high school seniors trying to win scholarships to the country’s best culinary schools, and shows like TakePart Live, hosted by Jacob Soboroff and Meghan McCain that offer up some “food for thought" about how the food system impacts our world.
True to Pivot TV’s mission, they’re also working with TakePart.com to help you move policy and raise awareness by letting you take action on these issues right from the screen of your desktop, mobile or tablet device, - because they believe what you watch does make a difference.
Find out when the movies that will give you some great Food for Thought will be playing and how to take action by heading to the “Food For Thought” hub.
