A Place at The Table

A Place at the Table

As a trustee of The Marcus Foundation I am honored that we have launched a new initiative to bring renewed attention and policy change to ending hunger in America, through collaboration with Participant Media and A Place at The Table.  This effort was recognized by The James Beard Foundation during its 2012 annual awards dinner this week in New York City.

Co-sponsored with Good Housekeeping magazine, this year’s dinner honored Jason Clay (World Wildlife Fund), Tensie Whelan (Rainforest Alliance), Malik Yakini (Detroit Black Community Food Security Network), Kathleen Merrigan (Deputy Secretary of Agriculture) and acclaimed author, poet and farmer Wendell Berry.

John Besh, award-winning chef and restaurateur (chefjohnbesh.com) and master of ceremonies for the dinner, urged everyone to “please consider how you might be able to help the campaign around this film -- so all Americans can have a place at the table.” 

Placecards at the dinner contained information on A Place at The Table and the associated campaign being developed by Participant Media. (Watch the film trailer below.)
