The movie hype surrounding "The Hunger Games" is starting important conversations regarding hunger with our younger generations.
Fans are set up and anxiously awaiting "The Hunger Games."
"We've had our tickets for 2 months," exclaims fan Kourtney David.
"I'm very excited," says Krista Smith.
The movie, based on the first book of Suzanne Collins three part series, is set in a bleak future where everyone is hungry and kids need to fight to the death.
But the movie is also teaching younger generations, hunger is not a game.
"The topic of hunger in this country is a hidden topic and people don't usually talk about it," says Bart Brown with the Ozarks Food Harvest.
Brown says "The Hunger Games" is encouraging people, specifically teens, to start talking about hunger.
"We don't like to think there are so many kids hungry in our area but the fact is there are," Brown explains.
