A Place at the Table: movie moles review

program date: 
Mon, 03/25/2013

Denise Morris and Frann Michel discuss the documentary A Place at the Table, currently playing in Portland at the Hollywood Theatre, about the serious problem of food insecurity. The film makes vivid the struggles of some of the 50 million Americans who are food insecure, but provides an incomplete analysis. Although it dispels some myths (e.g., that hungry people will be skinny) it also perpetuates others (e.g., that fat is inherently unhealthy, that this issue mainly affects women of color).
