A Place at the Table is a great resource that I used this year in my HFN2O class to highlight food insecurity. It is a documentary first and foremost about food insecurity and its ramifications. It could also be in in HFA4C/U or other social science courses since it also depicts the following themes: parenting, poverty, politics and economics. It is Americanized, but there are many parallels to Canada and can generate some thoughtful discussion in Social Science classes about current events. It is available on Netflix.
