The Apple Pushers: New Documentary Featuring NYCCAH
Click the above image to view the trailer on YouTube. This October a great documentary on food access, immigration, and entrepreneurship will be released featuring NYCCAH. The Apple Pushers, written and directed by Mary Mazzio, narrated by Edward Norton, and underwritten by the Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Fund, follows immigrant street vendors who are rolling fresh fruits and vegetables into the inner cities of New York (where finding a fresh red ripe apple can be a serious challenge). The pushcart vendors are part of the city's Green Carts Initiative, a program that NYCCAH strongly supported, to help low-income families access fresh and affordable produce, and also address the staggering obesity rates. The film will premiere at the Mountain Film Festival at Lincoln Center on Friday, October 21st at 7:00 p.m. For more information, click here.
