About Us

Time For Lunch is a place to learn about eating, cooking, enjoying and sometimes playing with your food. Each episode will cover a new subject; taking a close look at one item, or ingredient, that might be found at the lunch table. Listeners are invited to participate, sharing jokes on-air or following along with in-episode quizzes and games. Hosted by Harry Rosenblum and Hannah Fordin, the show looks at food through the lens of history, culture, and play to celebrate and learn about the people and places that feed us. This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council.
