A Vital Message March 1 2013
By Redcollie - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I have been waiting for this to premier. I am the director of an emergency food program. The pantry feeds several area families each week and the need continues to grow. We pray for the day that we will go out of business, because no one needs our help. In the meantime, I am grateful that artists put together documentaries like this. Our communities can be so segregated, that the rich can't begin to relate to the poor. When we solicit for donations, we have had people tell us that there are no hungry in our town. This film raises awareness regarding the responsibility that we have toward one another. We are to care for those who can't help themselves. The other day at the pantry, I spoke with a guest who had recently lost her job and was forced to turn to the food pantry for help. The kicker was she was very well-versed on the issue of hunger-insecurity. Before she fell on hard times, she worked with local food banks and pantries. Now she needed to visit one herself. They say we are all a paycheck or two away. The speakers in the film were right. The food pantries and food banks cannot and should not be the answer for hungry families in this country. We need to be considered temporary help. We need to encourage the government to responsibly fund legislature that would support families who can't quite make ends meet. Like the one gentleman said, if feeding the hungry isn't the priority, he doesn't know what is. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

Hunger is an important issue. March 2 2013
By Lonnie E. Scott - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This film is important. It shines a light on hunger in America. There just isn't enough support for those who need it. The Government should step up the programs to help people in this nation have healthy and nutritious meals. The film talks about food stamps and school programs. The film failed to illustrate exactly how education could be changed. There was a teacher passing around a melon, but that's not going to be enough. Schools need their own gardens.

This isn't a place for a rant. Watch this film. Start thinking about how you and I can end hunger. Meanwhile, put pressure on Government to make sure kids aren't starving. Mention that sugar isn't food while you have them on the phone.

Thought provoking and a major issue in this country! March 1 2013
By Terri DuLong - Published on Amazon.com
A very profound documentary! I thought I was aware of the hunger problem in this country. I certainly was not. This film should be mandatory viewing for each and every citizen. Well done! I only hope changes will be made!

This book really got me to think March 3 2013
By Jennifer P. Klein - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This book and film are must read, must see.
As for the issue of hunger and malnutrition in the US, I've worked at various feeding programs including City Harvest. I'm also a single mom. Ive been on food stamps. And I know that the issue of hunger and malnutrition/child obesity is entwined with the issue of female poverty and the status of women . Divorce laws that leave women with a drop in socioeconomic status, lower female wages, and a minimum wage that hasnt kept pace with the cost of living combine to create a situation where single mothers are often working more than one job, with little time to shop and cook healthy meals. or to afford the ingredients, or to afford the neighborhoods where the ingredients are sold. These women arent just poor or stretched financially, they are stretched for time as well. Soup kitchens and food pantries help but not really-- the food is usually salty, starchy, and fatty at a soup kitchen and pantries stock canned goods and packaged processed food. What these families need are Meals on Wheels, healthy prepared meals that are easy to reheat and serve. The Meals on Wheels program has had solid success in improving the nutrition of seniors. I propose that we do the same for poor families now.

$632 Food Stamps Plus $500 more In WIC (Nutrioinal Food program) May 18 2014
By sickandtyerd - Published on Amazon.com
I can't hardly take documentaries not based on facts.

I am a welfare worker and have been for the past 24 years. So I'm talking what I know not what I have read! I have a hard time understanding how the nations children are going hungry. I am a welfare worker who approve foodstamps and WIC everyday. A family of four receives $632 in food stamps, those with children under the age of 5 receive an additional food grant from WIC (more food for pregnant mothers and their children up to age 5). The WIC is a total $500 per month in addition to $632. That's a total of $1132. This is in addition to the other government subsidies (cash assistance, SSI, Section 8 housing (with rent of $100) reduced utilities and free telephone.

Now. let's look at the same family of 4 who has income of about $2643. This family does not qualify for food stamps, rental assistance, transportation asistsance, utility reduction nor free cell phone. They wind up spending most of their money in rent, transportation, childcare, cell phone bill, etc. This leaves very little for food. It's the working people that are having a hard time making it in the United States. These are people who get up every morning hitting it. It's a sad day when someone getting up going to work is living worse then people who are doing nothing. And spare me that these people want to work but can't find work. As I stated, I'm talking facts. The only people who should receive ANY government assistance (without doing something for it )are chidlren (under 18), elderly (over 70) and severely disabled. Every other abled bodied adult should be working doing something for this country. The bible says man don't work he don't eat! They should be working in the schools, roads, child care, etc. The able bodied should not be eating if they have not worked for it. Damn right they should be hungry. No one feeds me and mine. I had to work! And by the way, I'm a black woman.

When you attach penalties for working (like losing government assistance) you create a class of people who have figured out if I work I lose everything! It is high time that system start to assist those that are trying to make on an income that is no where near keeping up with inflation! I see the women struggling to make it. These are the forgotten people. Working people who are trying their darnest to stay afloat.
