Trailer for the documentary One in Seven, The New Face of Hunger.
The startling account of hunger in some of America's most affluent communities after the worst economic downturn since the great depression. Students from a wealthy Southern California suburb discover that 'One in Seven' in the US suffer from hunger. Who is hungry and struggling is shocking. It is average Americans; neighbors, children, the elderly, and active military families. A comprehensive look at other issues related to hunger such as obesity, morbidity, student achievement, military readiness, national security, and the environment are also explored in the film. Sadly in the US over 96 billion pounds of food is dumped into landfills every year. While the film educates with personal stories that are heart wrenching the film focuses on solutions, creating change, and hope.
