Pelham Teens Make Film on Food Rescue Organization County Harvest

Documentary Intensive 2016 – County Harvest from The Picture House on Vimeo.

EcoPel salutes the work of five Pelham high school students who produced a short film on the local food recycling organization County Harvest as part of a week-long documentary intensive workshop offered by The Picture House in July.

The student production team included George Fuss, Zoe Landless, Jonah Kraftowitz, Jared Morel, and Jack Silverman.

The class was taught by Emily Dombroff, film production teacher and art department chair at Mamaroneck High School.

County Harvest is an all-volunteer organization that gathers surplus food from dozens of top supermarkets, restaurants, and other venues, and distributes it to soup kitchens, food pantries, and homeless shelters.

Founded in October 2009 by Pelhamite Missy Palmisciano, it serves a growing population of families, seniors, veterans, and children in our area who are not sure where their next meal will come from.
