Several weeks ago, I put a note on my online calendar for the start date of the film “A Place at the Table” that will playing at a local theater for one week only. I put in on my calendar to make sure that I didn’t miss it.

The filmmakers Lori Silverbush and Kristi Jacobson were interviewed on MSNBC’s “The Cycle” yesterday, and they spoke about their film that tackles food insecurity in the United States. Their message is incredibly timely considering that the film will be released on the day that 600,000 women and children may be dropped from the Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children because of the looming government “sequester.”
