National Geographic Documentary Films Announces Emmy Doc Contender WE FEED PEOPLE to Expand to Hulu and the National Geographic Channel This Month

The Doc Feature From Ron Howard and Imagine Documentaries Highlighting José Andrés and World Central Kitchen is Currently Streaming on Disney+

WASHINGTON -- Today, National Geographic Documentary Films announced that WE FEED PEOPLE, the critically acclaimed documentary from Academy Award(R)-winning director Ron Howard featuring world-renowned chef and humanitarian José Andrés, will become available on Hulu starting June 16 as well as through a special screening on National Geographic Channel on Friday, June 17, at 9 p.m. EDT, in addition to continued streaming on Disney+.

WE FEED PEOPLE spotlights renowned chef José Andrés and his nonprofit World Central Kitchen's inspiring mission and remarkable evolution over 12 years, from a scrappy group of grassroots volunteers to one of the most highly regarded humanitarian aid organizations focused on disaster relief. Brian Grazer, Imagine Documentaries' Sara Bernstein, Justin Wilkes and Meredith Kaulfers, and Walter Matteson serve as producers alongside Howard.

"I'm thrilled that we are able to share the inspiring story of chef José and his remarkable team at World Central Kitchen to an even wider audience with the release of the film on the National Geographic Channel and Hulu," said director Ron Howard. "In telling this story, I've been inspired by the work of World Central Kitchen, currently leading extraordinary relief efforts in both Ukraine and Uvalde, and the lessons we can learn from their humanitarian acts. I believe in the power of community when we all come together to support each other; it's a story we can all learn something from and aspire to."

Released on May 27 on Disney+, the film has garnered overwhelmingly positive reviews since its premiere at the SXSW Film Festival in March and has retained a 100% critics rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Featuring an incredibly powerful story of humanity, volunteerism and global relief efforts, the film is a leading contender in the documentary special race for this year's Emmy(R) Awards.

"We feel so honored to bring the remarkable story of José Andrés and World Central Kitchen to the world," said Carolyn Bernstein, EVP, Scripted and Documentary Films at National Geographic. "The immensely talented Ron Howard, our longtime collaborator, beautifully captures the groundbreaking work that WCK is doing on a global scale to help those affected by natural and man-made disasters. We can't wait for audiences around the world to witness this inspiring story of hope and humanity through Hulu and the National Geographic channel."

National Geographic Documentary Films previously released the Academy Award, BAFTA and seven-time Emmy Award-winning film "Free Solo" and the Academy Award-nominated film "The Cave." In 2021, they released "Becoming Cousteau," "Fauci," "The First Wave," "The Rescue" and "Torn." Other critically acclaimed films under the banner include Ron Howard's "Rebuilding Paradise"; Sundance Audience Award winners "Science Fair" and "Sea of Shadows"; Emmy winners "LA 92" and "Jane," both of which were included in the top 15 documentaries considered for an Academy Award in 2017; and Dupont Award winner "Hell on Earth: The Fall of Syria and the Rise of Isis."
