Today on Your Call: What are the economic, social and cultural implications of hunger?

Mar 10, 2013

On today’s Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with Lori Silverbush, co-director of A Place at the Table, a new documentary that focuses on the United States’ growing hunger epidemic. Over 50 million Americans, including one in four children, don’t have access to enough nutritious food to live a healthy and active life. What explains this hunger epidemic? And what will it take to eradicate it? It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
