Trailer: "A Place at the Table" Documentary Says 49 Million Americans are Starving and Fat

Trailer: "A Place at the Table" Documentary Says 49 Million Americans are Starving and FatSubmit Comment
Today we have a trailer for "A Place at the Table," which says that one in six Americans don't know where their next meal is coming from. There's enough food for everyone in the country, but poverty is keeping people from being able to eat.

I doubt that the filmmakers interviewed every American to find out who's not eating properly. It seems that they believe that 49 million people are going hungry because there are 49 million people in America who receive food stamps (which is maximum $200 per person per month, not $3 per day, see USDA link below). But if they receive food stamps, why are they going hungry?

The documentary also makes the point that these hungry Americans tend to eat cheap food that's usually high in calories, which is why they are also obese. So, hungry Americans are fat? The entire thing is very confusing, but check out the trailer below and watch the movie in theaters on March 1st.

Starving Americans aren't fat; poor Ammys are fat.

I doubt anybody's goign hungry with 200 bucks worth of foo' stam' per month if you're budgeting it on mcdonald's and other cheap places.

Yes, believe it or not you can physically eat less and get fat..

It's pretty simple really, clean food is going to be less calorie dense than junk food. So you can eat more.

I'm sure not all 'hungry Americans are fat' but it does make sense.

Depending on circ*mstances of course.

This is the damned dumbest thing I've ever read on here, hands down.

The movie, from what I can tell, blames Reagan for all the supposedly starving people, and says not enough is being done to feed America's hungry.


Even the homeless are fat these days, and I'm pretty sure being fat isn't indicative of starvation. Maybe I just watched all those Sally Struthers 'Feed Ethiopia' commercials wrong, though.

Bizarre. I mean, food stamp funding is at an all-time high. So what's the problem? Cheap food? Please. You can buy plenty of decent food for two hundred bucks a month, and contrary to Spooky, food stamps doesn't f*cking buy McDonalds. Just another moment where in he talks about something he doesn't f*cking understand, as usual.

Maybe they mean the hungry and homeless can't eat like Bill Gates. Fillet Mignon and caviar every meal. Whatever. Portioning is the problem, not the 'quality'. Eat 2000 calories and exercise. You'll be fine.

Just more left-wing big-government feel-good blame the conservatives and Republican bullsh*t to be swallowed whole by a public ever hungry for agitprop.
