Film Feast

I’m passing along news of two upcoming foodie films, both of which have a charity twist, courtesy of one of my favorite SF food blogs, Tablehopper. Share Our Strength has partnered with the Food Network for its amazing new documentary called “Hunger Hits Home.” Narrated by Jeff Bridges, the film gives viewers a first-hand look at the 16 million kids who are going hungry in America through the eyes of parents, children and others battling this crisis. Tune in this Saturday night (April 14) at 8/7C.

Next up on Earth Day (Sunday, April 22), Whole Foods Market is launching its annual Do Something Reel Film Festival with a screening of “The Apple Pushers.” The film, with narration by Edward Norton, follows five immigrant vendors as they sell fresh fruits and vegetables on the streets of some of New York's poorest neighborhoods. Catch a live screening in Austin, Boston, Detroit, Pittsburgh and San Francisco (proceeds from ticket sales go to local food-related nonprofit organizations); or click here to find out if it's playing near you.
