A powerful documentary tackling the hunger epidemic in America. 50 million Americans go to bed hungry every night. Hunger in America breaks down the cliched ideas of who the hungry are today. Narrated by James Denton. "You can get a lot more bags of potato chips than you can get bags of potatoes. You can get a lot more soda versus gallons of milk," Tina Edwards of Graceworks Ministries says in the trailer. "Children are eating lots of empty calories, because that food is cheaper to purchase." Does this all sound familiar? Like you've seen this movie before? Maybe so, but that's part of the problem"”despite researchers having shown that hunger in children has a long-term impact, for example, on their ability to learn and succeed in life, we're still stuck with that image of a homeless man as the face of hunger. Until that changes, this story will have to be told over and over.
