Film Summary:

This documentary is about the food choices low-income families have to make when it comes to nutrition. Their food choices are usually limited by their financial struggle. The film indicates that unhealthy foods are cheaper and the foods that would be healthier cost more and some families can’t afford it. The people who appear in the documentary highlight alternative ways to get around the situation so they can achieve the nutrition that they need.
