Nourish’s New DVD

I love the folks over at Nourish. If you haven’t explored their website, I encourage you to do so. I especially like their downloadables.

Awhile back I blogged about about the release of their DVD, appropriately named, Nourish. That video was a great introduction to many of the issues I blog about around here. At the time I watched the DVD with my husband and we both enjoyed it. Sort of like preaching to the choir though, right?

Recently the friendly folks from Nourish contacted me again to say that they have put together another DVD, Nourish Short Films. This time the video is a compilation of little video interviews from leading voices in the food reform movement including Michael Pollan, Jamie Oliver, Anna Lappe, and Alice Waters. Most of the DVD includes never-before-seen snippets of film.

As an educator and an avid Youtube watcher, I believe that short videos are vital to telling the story of food to young people. But frankly, even I don’t have patience to sit through long discussions or monologues about food politics in video form.  That’s the advantage of Nourish Short Films. Here’s a small dose:

The folks at Nourish sent me a complimentary Nourish Short Films DVD. I’m ashamed to say I haven’t had a chance to watch it. There has been no time for TV in my life. But if it’s anything like Nourish’s first video, I’m sure it will be great.

Nourish has graciously offered to give away a copy of their latest DVD to a reader! To enter, please click over to my blog and comment on this post by next Thursday September 15th. Winners will be announced next weekend. (Also I have ditched the “Disqus” program because many people had difficulty commenting. It should be much easier to comment now.)

Disclaimer: Nourish provided me with a free copy of the DVD for review purposes.

    Love it! I have been trying to get myself and son on a more fruit and veggie diet, and I absolutely believe eating them in season is the best way to go.
    I was just talking to a friend of mine the other day about how I am clueless when it comes to what is in season and Epicurious has a page that shows what is in season for my state and its great!
    Thanks for sharing!

    What a great idea! If I win one I will offer it to my kids teachers to check out. Kids need to get shown this kind of thing.

    This looks great! I am guilty of not eating in season unless we grow it ourselves. Would love this DVD!

    I teach Nutrition & Wellness and Culinary Arts Foundations at a high school in the midwest. My students will be starting a project where they will actually create a dish that could be served in the school cafeteria (based on the newest federal guidelines). Those that meet the cost and nutritional requirements have the potential to become an actual school menu item. We’re pretty excited about it, and I know they would love to hear what others have to say about school lunch.

    This is fantastic! Would love to see the DVD. Recently became a big fan of what Nourish is up to.

    I would love to share this with my children’s school & our swim team. My kids are not old enough to watch Food, Inc (the movie that has transformed my life & how my family eats) and I am excited to find something that is meant for children (and squeemish adults).
