Colicchio & Batali – Hungry in America

At a time when the Haiti disaster is pulling at the nation’s heartstrings and purse strings, is it a hard sell to a campaign to end hunger in America?

Not if you start with two of America’s biggest chefs, Tom Colicchio and Mario Batali.

They are co-producing a film by Tom’s wife Lori Silverbush and Kristi Jacobson, called Hunger in America. The film is part of a multimedia campaign to tackle hunger here at home.

The film is only 20% finished, but here is a sneak-peak for today’s Food Flick.

Hungry in America
Duration: 04 minutes 07 seconds

The project is looking for donations. The FEED Foundation and Vanity Fair along with Tom and Mario are sponsoring two kickoff events. February 21st at Colicchio & Sons in New York, where Tom will be cooking on the wood-burning hearth, and February 28th at Craft in Los Angeles.
