'Finding North' Examines America's Hunger Problem

A moving documentary about the struggles millions of people are facing everyday and how we can do something about it

Hunger, a topic we find extremely important at The Daily Meal, is taking center stage in the documentary Finding North, which just premiered at the Sundance Film Festival.

Brought to you by Kristi Jacobson and Lori Silverbush, wife of chef Tom Colicchio, the film is based on the idea that “we are the richest most, powerful nation the world and we still haven’t found the political will to end hunger."

We see kids talking about their grumbling stomachs, parents stating the insecurities of feeding them, and professionals of all sorts — in Congress, in the media, at the food banks — explaining simply, what we’re doing wrong. As hunger-ending pioneer and actor Jeff Bridges best put it, “One in four of our children living in food insecure homes? That just doesn’t make sense at all.”

We’re living in a time where we can really make a difference, see how you can here. Watch the trailer below.
