“Hunger in America” reveals that many American citizens suffer from hunger, and that hunger is not just a third-world problem. A few pastors are becoming involved in fighting hunger, as are figure heads of organizations, and they are in this documentary, too. Many organizations send excess food to those who need it. Also, the film focuses on how the elderly and children are most affected. It also shares statistics as to certain areas of America and the number of those who don’t have enough food. In one startling statement, a man says that he sees people step over the homeless regularly.
This brief film contains a largely important message: Hunger is still present in America, and hopefully more people will join the efforts of those who are fighting it. We are awarding this film our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for all ages, although it is not intended for the very young. The filmmakers convey its message very well in drawing attention to the problem.
