America is one of the world’s wealthiest nations. And yet, we remain the only country in the developed world where some 49 million people go hungry despite sufficient resources, technology and farmable land to provide nutritious, affordable food for all. As the economy continues to weaken, millions more join the ranks every day.  Hunger is detrimental to health, productivity, and learning—especially for the 17 million hungry American children—posing serious economic, social and cultural implications for this country.

Hungry in America is a feature-length documentary that presents an un?inching look at the root causes behind this sobering reality and asks tough questions about why a nation that could feed all of its citizens has failed to do so.

Vanity Fair and the FEED Foundation are teaming up to throw two fundraising events to help launch the Hungry in America Project; the first was co-hosted by Tom Colicchio and Natalie Portman on Sunday, February 21 at Colicchio & Sons in New York City at 85 10th Avenue. The second event will be hosted by Colicchio on Sunday, February 28 at Craft in Los Angeles. Click here for more information.
