Host a Film Screening

Powerful documentary about hunger in America


More than 1 in 8 Americans don’t know when or where they will get their next meal. Directors Kristi Jacobson and Lori Silverbush examine this issue through the lens of three individuals who are struggling with food hardship, including fifth-grader Rosie from the Western Slope of Colorado.

Watch the trailer and a panel discussion, which followed a Colorado screening, to learn more about the film, how hunger impacts Coloradans, and what you can do to be a part of the solution.

A Place at the Table is available on Netflix, DVD and Blue-ray. Hunger Free Colorado also has copies that can be borrowed for individual or small-group showings.

Take your place in the fight to end hunger. We urge you to turn this documentary into conversation—and action—in one (or more) of the following ways. With the film:

  • Gather your family, friends and co-workers to watch A Place at the Table together. Host a screening at your home, office, church or other location, and afterward have a discussion about hunger in Colorado using the “Take Your Place” discussion guide or an anti-hunger representative. If  you would like to coordinate a film screening, please contact us today.
  • Host a private screening at a local theater. Use it as an opportunity to bring attention to the issue in your community and raise money for your organization. In addition to the screening, you can host a panel or Q&A after the documentary’s conclusion. Learn more about the process.

Other ways to be a part of the solution:

  • Sign up for our monthly newsletter and alerts to stay up-to-date on news, stories and opportunities to make a difference in Colorado.
  • Join the Hunger P.O.D. Squad, a change-making opportunity where individuals engage in the issue and solutions surrounding hunger throughout the year—from attending quarterly learning sessions to sharing information with others about the issue of hunger or taking the SNAP Challenge.
  • Talk about it online. Share your thoughts about the film, hunger in Colorado and the rest of the U.S., and encourage others to see it on Facebook, Twitter, your blog and elsewhere.
  • View stories from the SNAP Alumni project, hosted by Participant Media. It champions successful Americans—citizens who once received food stamps and are now leaders in the arts, government, business, sports and education—including Kelly Brough, the Denver Chamber of Commerce’s CEO. Read their stories; tell yours.

We hope this powerful documentary moves you to take action and be a part of the solution to end hunger in Colorado and throughout America.
