That much is the gist of the documentary "A Place at the Table," which screens May 29 & 30 and June 1 at the Crest Theatre. The Sacramento Hunger Coalition is presenting a showing of the film tonight at 6, followed by a panel discussion as part of Hunger Action Week.

The Crest is at 1013 K St., Sacramento
Their stories are interwoven with insights from experts like sociologist Janet Poppendieck and nutrition policy leader Marion Nestle. Actor Jeff Bridges and other persons of note are interviewed in the documentary.
