A crew from Food Forward, a new public television program, was on the Hyde Park campus in early July to shoot a segment for the upcoming season. The segment will feature the CIA’s efforts towards sustainable food sourcing and purchasing from local farmers, as well as the college’s support for veterans transitioning into new post-military careers.
Profiled on the program is a student who is a veteran of the U.S. Navy and was doing his externship field experience at the Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, NY, a holistic studies retreat that values sustainability.
Food Forward’s pilot episode was a 2013 James Beard Foundation Award finalist in the Television Special/Documentary category. The episode from the CIA is scheduled to air in spring 2014.
