Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: It specifically addresses our country's hunger crisis. But it also speaks to larger hungers. Hungers for independence, a dignified life, a better chance for ones children-in short, the American dream. See it and weep. – Mary F. Pols, TIME Magazine, Mar 1, 2013

Fresh: The filmmakers vividly illustrate the power and depth of the long-spiraling problem of "food insecurity" by immersing us in the hardscrabble lives of a cross section of our nation's poor. – Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times, Feb 28, 2013

Fresh: Through their stories, Jacobson and Silverbush lens a broader picture of rampant hunger in a country that actually produces astounding amounts of food. – Chris Packham, Village Voice, Feb 26, 2013

Fresh: "A Place at the Table" presents a shameful truth that should leave viewers dismayed and angry: This nation has more than enough food for all its people, yet millions of them are hungry. – Walter V. Addiego, San Francisco Chronicle, Mar 7, 2013

Eye Opening

Ignore the previous review that discusses how people in this country are overfed. Obviously he/she did not watch the documentary which showed the connection between obesity and lack of food in this country. I went to the supermarket today and grapes were $3.69 per pound, a bag of chips was on sale for $1.29. An individual with a limited budget would go for the chips every time. It is a problem of agriculture a problem of food distribution and a problem of priorities in this country. Even if you don't care that people are hungry, you should care that it is costing you billions in increased healthcare costs, decrease in productivity by children and adults that are not getting adequate nutrition. Fat or skinny people in this country do not have the nutrients they need. I found this documentary to be interesting, insightful and gave information that should really make people stop and think about what policies in this country are doing and whether or not we are doing what we can to help our neighbors. I volunteer at a food bank and one day one of my daughter's classmates came in..I had no idea that they were hungry which is really the point of this movie.

I want to buy not to rent

I wish I could buy this movie and not just rent it.

Brought me to tears

I went in to the theatre, fully knowing that the crew of Food, Inc. would bring me another compelling story of America's current problems about food. The documentary somehow managed to exceed my expectation. Whenever the music of the film quieted down, I could hear people 3 rolls behind me sobbing, silently and painfully, at the hardships that people are going through in the documentary, and at the political plight of the current state of American hunger. I wouldn't pretend and say that this film is the solution to the severe problem this country is facing. I probably wouldn't even say that this film is unbiased in its narrative, as most documentaries tend to be focused on telling the story of one side. However, I have absolutely 100% certainty to say that it has done a fantastic job at presenting the case, and putting the statistics in context of the poor but respectful people who are living these lives with little hope. Something needs to be done, and you watching this documentary could be one of the vital steps.
