A Place at the Table (my personal favorite documentary) – Fifty million people in the U.S.—one in four children—don’t know where their next meal is coming from. Directors Kristi Jacobson and Lori Silverbush examine the issue of hunger in America through the lens of three people struggling with food insecurity: Barbie, a single Philadelphia mother who grew up in poverty and is trying to provide a better life for her two kids; Rosie, a Colorado fifth-grader who often has to depend on friends and neighbors to feed her and has trouble concentrating in school; and Tremonica, a Mississippi second-grader whose asthma and health issues are exacerbated by the largely empty calories her hardworking mother can afford.
Ultimately, A Place at the Table shows us how hunger poses serious economic, social and cultural implications for our nation, and that it could be solved once and for all, if the American public decides — as they have in the past — that making healthy food available and affordable is in the best interest of us all.

CHICAGO VEGAN FOODS: The company was started over a decade ago by teenage friends Ryan Howard and Dan Ziegler with the goal of merging their love for animals and activism into a business that could help bring awareness to veganism. What better way to build awareness than through great tasting food? Over the years as the business has grown, so has our staff and our product line. When Dan and Ryan started the business they were making soymilk, which went on to become the basis for our delicious Temptation Ice Cream line. They found that as the weather got cooler so did ice cream sales so they asked “what’s missing?” They went back to the drawing board and created Teese Vegan Cheese. From there it became our mission to look for and fill another void in the vegan market. Enter the birth of Dandies Vegan Marshmallows. As we continue to grow our business we promise to always put you and the animals first. It is our strong belief that through fun, passion and food that we can help make great vegan foods that are better for the animals, better for you! Enter to win!

Food Inc. – In Food, Inc., filmmaker Robert Kenner lifts the veil on our nation’s food industry, exposing the highly mechanized underbelly that has been hidden from the American consumer with the consent of our government’s regulatory agencies, USDA and FDA. Our nation’s food supply is now controlled by a handful of corporations that often put profit ahead of consumer health, the livelihood of the American farmer, the safety of workers and our own environment. We have bigger-breasted chickens, the perfect pork chop, herbicide-resistant soybean seeds, even tomatoes that won’t go bad, but we also have new strains of E. coli—the harmful bacteria that causes illness for an estimated 73,000 Americans annually. We are riddled with widespread obesity, particularly among children, and an epidemic level of diabetes among adults. Enter to win a copy of Food Inc!
