On September 10th, 2014, The Human Impacts Institute co-hosted the Screening Premiere in NYC of Food Forward, a new PBS series about Americans transforming our food. After screening the pilot episode and a few clips from various other episodes covering issues from composting to fish to urban gardening, there was a live performance from Ashlynn Manning and a lively Q&A. On the Q&A panel sat Josh Goldman, Co-Founder & CEO of Australis, Shannon Eldredge Co-Founder of Cape Cod Community Supported Fisheries, Stefanie Sacks Author of What the Fork Are You Eating?; Vandra Thorburn, Founder & President of Vokashi; Sophia Brittan, Founder & Chef at Victory Garden NYC; Sean Barret, Co-Founder of Dock to Dish; Paul Greenberg, Author ofAmerican Catch. There was a great turn out to the event, as the line wrapped around the block with people eager to learn more about sustainability, food and the rebels that are making a difference in the way we eat.
FoodForward has been many years in the making since the Team set out to change food television. Our journey has taken us to more than 50 cities across America capturing the farmers, fishermen, ranchers, scientists, and teachers who are transforming the way we eat in America. And now the time has come to truly celebrate these FOOD REBELS in all of their delicious glory!
Watch Food Forward on WLW21 in NYC Sundays at 4:30pm, starting September 19th!
