Why is it that 50 million people in the U.S.—one in five children—don’t know where their next meal will come from? A Place at the Table is one film that shows us how hunger poses serious implications for our nation and how we might solve the problem.

The documentary airs as part of Food for Thought Month this September on Pivot TV. Every Wednesday and Sunday, you'll find films that discuss issues such as hunger, sustainability, and industrial farming—from well-known documentaries like Food, Inc. to lesser-known gems like Pressure Cooker. We've also got compelling shows such as Dark Rye, an in-depth look at innovation in farming and food, and our nightly news program, TakePart Live, hosted by Soboroff and Meghan McCain, where we focus on the issues that matter to those who care about what they eat.

We're also working with TakePart to offer simple, effective ways to take action on these issues right from your screen. Together, we can change the way our food is made. That’s because we believe what you watch makes a difference.
