In a documentary film by Soledad O'Brien and Geeta Gandbhir, we meet the faces behind an American crisis -- college students so strapped to pay tuition that they don't have enough money to eat.
It's not about Ramen Noodles and care packages from home, it's a life of suffering from having no food at all, eating at food pantries or off the trays of fellow students. It's the humiliation of telling teachers and school officials that they need help, of applying for food stamps only to discover how hard it is for students to qualify, of going to class day after day distracted by hunger and rumbling stomachs.
These free screenings are intended for UW-Madison students, faculty, staff, and Union members and guests.
