A Place at the Table, narrated by Jeff Bridges and scored by T-Bone Burnett, is a documentary that places the spotlight on hunger here at home. It tells the stories of people struggling with food insecurity in the U.S., where 50 million people are unsure of where their next meal will come from. The Vineyard Committee on Hunger and Martha’s Vineyard Film Society will sponsor a showing of the film on Wednesday, August 21, at 7:30 p.m. at the film center at the Tisbury Marketplace in Vineyard Haven.
Massachusetts Congressman Jim McGovern and seasonal West Chop resident Dr. Mariana Chilton, both of whom are in the film, will be on hand for a panel discussion following the film. They will be joined by the film’s codirector Lori Silverbush and by Dr. Donald Berwick, who has helped implement health care policy in the U.S. and abroad.
