Most people pass hungry people on the street and do nothing. Meet three people who can’t and won’t. The Starfish Throwers tells the story of a top chef in India, a retired school teacher in Minnesota and a twelve year old girl from South Carolina who risk their health, wealth and reputation to fight for a cause most say is lost.

Follow Krishnan as he sharpens skills acquired as a top chef to cook and hand deliver fresh meals to hundreds of people, 365 days a year - all while bringing social shame onto his high caste born family. Will he be able to realize a years long vision as he struggles to build and open a rehabilitation campus for those he serves? Discover how fifty vegetable gardens can be traced to the seed of a single cabbage planted by a nine year old Katie Stagliano. Will the voices of critics dissuade her from continuing her work as she enters her teen years? Join the midnight rounds with retire school teacher Mr. Law as he hand delivers more than a thousand sandwiches nightly. Find out why he hasn’t slept in a bed in thirteen years and if his blatant disregard for his own health and safety will come back to haunt him. 

In each of their unique journeys, these unforgettable people meet discouraging and unexpected challenges and must find a way to persevere, despite being constantly reminded, “don’t you know world hunger is far too big for one person?”
