24 Hours, 24 Million Meals
Feeding New YorkStreaming Video - 2010
It may be a hub of global business and culture, but on a more primal level, New York City is a place where eight million people hustle to fill their stomachs. This program depicts a day in the life of the culinary community that feeds the Big Apple. The story begins in the Bronx, just after midnight, with the first stirrings of the New York City Terminal Produce Market. At 2 a.m., Chelsea Market bakeries are busy making dough. Two hours later, forklifts rumble through the New Fulton Fish Market, essentially a refrigerated warehouse the size of three football fields. Then it's on to 7-a.m. booth set-ups at the Union Square Greenmarket. In the hours of high-speed commerce that follow, viewers meet a wide assortment of culinary professionals-including a chef who manages a hectic kitchen, a gourmet truffle salesman just returned from Italy, and two men committed to feeding disadvantaged New Yorkers.
