So often, discussions about food in this country can seem a bit ... elitist. We talk about 100-percent grass-fed beef, humanely raised pork, and organic produce, but when someone mentions the fact that those foods are more expensive than their modern conventional counterparts proponents merely say it's worth it.
For about 50 million people in this country, being "worth it" is irrelevant. They aren't asking themselves whether their meat is humane or how far their produce traveled, they are wondering where their next meal will come from, how they will pay for it, and whether it will show up at all.
Those 50 million food insecure Americans simply want A Place At The Table, and filmmakers Lori Silverbush and Kristi Jacobson are hoping their documentary will accomplish just that.
