SPOTLIGHTING THE GOOD FOOD MOVEMENT, EDIBLE CITY DEBUTS ON PIVOT DURING “FOOD FOR THOUGHT” MONTH
On Wednesday, September 23rd at 9:00pm eastern, Edible City, the feature length documentary focusing on the Good Food Movement taking place in the San Francisco Bay area, will make its broadcast premiere on Pivot. Edible City tells the stories of extraordinary people who are digging their hands into the dirt and doing something truly revolutionary: growing local Good Food systems that are socially just, environmentally sound, and economically resilient. The diverse cast of inspiring characters share their unique perspectives and transformative work, from edible education to grassroots activism to building local economies—finding solutions to these monumental problems.
Edible City will be featured as part of Pivot’s “Food for Thought” month this September. During “Food for Thought” month, hosted by chef Byron Talbott, Pivot will air films and shows that will change the way we think about food, especially in regards to hunger, sustainability and accessibility. In order to support change in connection with issues of food insecurity, Pivot has teamed up with TakePart.com to tell Congress not to cut food stamp benefits and to urge local and state legislators to support family farmers.
