A Friend for Supper
Film  (10:00) 1944, director: Gudrun Bjerring
During World War II, a teacher explains how children in Russia, China, and occupied Europe are going hungry, and how Canada is helping to remedy the situation. A classroom film for urban children, A Friend for Supper appeals to the child's sense of compassion. Wasting food is like taking it from hungry children, but a clean plate is like having a friend for supper.
