The Real Horror: "A Place at the Table" Documentary Says 49 Million Americans are Starving

Today we have a trailer for "A Place at the Table," which says that one in x Americans don't know where their next meal is coming from. There's enough food for everyone in the country, but poverty is keeping people from being able to eat.

I doubt that the filmmakers interviewed every American to find out who's not eating properly. It seems that they believe that 49 million people are going hungry because there are 49 million people in America who receive food stamps (which is maximum $200 per person per month, not $3 per day, see USDA link below). But if they receive food stamps, why are they going hungry?

The documentary also makes the point that these hungry Americans tend to eat cheap food that's usually high in calories, which is why they are also obese. So, hungry Americans are fat? The entire thing is very confung, but check out the trailer below and watch the movie in theaters on March 1st.
