(Woodstock, NY) April 18, 2013- The Woodstock Film Festival and 120dbFilms present the critically acclaimed documentary A Place at the Table at its Annual Soho House New York Fundraiser; May 7 at 7pm. Filmmakers Lori Silverbush and Kristi Jacobson will be on hand to offer insight into their searing exposé into hunger in the United States.
A Place at the Table was produced by world renowned chef Tom Collcchio who is featured in the film along with actor Jeff Bridges.
Directors Lori Silverbush and Kristi Jacobson take audiences on a riveting journey into the lives of three of the 50 Million Americans who don't know where their next meal is coming from; Barbie, a Philadelphia mother trying to pull herself out of poverty and provide a better life for her young children; Rosie, a Colorado fifth-grader whose family depends on charity food; and Tremonica, a Mississippi second-grader whose asthma and health issues are exacerbated by the largely empty calories her hardworking mother can afford.
A Place at the Table will change forever how you think about democracy, and show how we can end hunger quickly and effectively in America, forever.
A reception with complementary refreshments will follow the film. Proceeds for the event will directly benefit both the Woodstock Film Festival and the New York City Coalition Against Hunger and their Farm Fresh Initiative.
Tickets for the event are $250 and can be purchased at www.woodstockfilmfestival.com/fundraising/placeattable.php
Soho House NY is located at

"The film explains with devastating simplicity why so many go hungry in a country with more than enough food to go round."
