 h1. Dear readers,

 '"A is a revealing new film that I almost didn't watch. Flipping through iTunes movies the other night, I confused it with '"Step — about French chefs. While both have food at their center, the two films couldn't be more different.

 "A Place at the Table" addresses the tremendous problem of hunger in the United States. While most of us know about famines in other countries, not enough of us know that food insecurity in our own country has increased significantly in recent decades. Today, some 50 million Americans — one in four children — have insufficient nutritious food. These are our friends, neighbors, and families. 

 Interestingly, hunger  was largely eliminated in the 1970s, according to the film. Since then, however, poverty has increased, and thus the problem of hunger has ballooned. Thousands of new food banks and soup kitchens have been created over the last three decades, but the extra charity is not enough to feed everyone nutritious food. The movie forcefully argues for legislative and policy change. 

 This isn't a question of resources — it's a question of allocation. Forty years ago American politicians found a way to close the hunger gap. Will they do it again?
