The Apple Pushers

This Sunday you have the opportunity to watch the incredible film, The Apple Pushers at the Whole Foods, Do Something Reel Film Festival in San Francisco which opens April 22. This documentary film festival is happening every month all year long. It’s a great opportunity to view a collection of consciousness-raising films.

The Apple Pushers film will be followed by a panel discussion with the film’s writer and director, Mary Mazzio; executive producer Laurie Tisch; and celebrity chef Michel Nischan. Debi Mazar, star of the Cooking Channel’s “Extra Virgin” and “Entourage,” will host the discussion.

“The Apple Pushers, written and directed by Mary Mazzio, narrated by Academy Award nominee 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). These pushcart vendors, who have immigrated here from all parts of the world for different reasons, and who all have sacrificed so much to come to this country (a near fatal crossing of the Mexican border, as an example) – are now part of a new experiment in New York to help solve the food crisis and skyrocketing obesity rates in the inner city.” The Apple Pushers website.

    Hey Selena! Just letting you know I’ve been loving your Flavorstitch posts, glad you’ve resumed updating this space. Over the past few months I’ve transitioned to being 100% raw vegan and I’m loving it, and your blog gives me lots of healthy ideas. :)

    I may go back to cooked vegan or vegetarian though, raw vegan can be so expensive!
