We Have to Talk About Hunger
November 14, 2015  

Although Vermont is the healthiest state in the country, one in five children live in hunger. How can that be?

In 2009 Vermont became the 6th hungriest state in the nation. This documentary takes a look behind the statistics (one in five children in Vermont lives with food insecurity) to investigate who “the hungry” actually are and ask the disturbing question: Why, in Vermont, the healthiest state in the nation, can we not feed our own?


We Have to Talk About Hunger was produced by Alison Segar.
