Robot cameras! Billie Eilish! It’s ‘New Day New Chef’ Support & Feed edition

There’s a brand-new series of New Day New Chef on Amazon Prime Video, and this time it focuses on the work of the vegan nonprofit Support & Feed, started by singer Billie Eilish’s mom Maggie Baird. In this special season of NDNC, host Jane Velez-Mitchell and Maggie welcome the chefs supplying food to the needy during the pandemic – and of course appearances by her vegan fam Billie and her musician brother Finneas.

These episodes were filmed mainly with robotic cameras on the NDNC set plus celebrity co-hosts hunkered down at home. Chefs include Sage Bistro’s Mollie Engelhart, SunCafe’s Ron Russell, Pura Vita’s Tara Punzone, and the one and only Angela “Bye Felicia” Means-Kaaya of Jackfruit Café.

LOS ANGELES, CA – The popular vegan cooking show New Day New Chef returns to Amazon’s Prime Video for a special series showcasing Support and Feed, a nonprofit organization helping those in need during the COVID-19 crisis and beyond.

Filmed largely with robotic cameras during the COVID-19 outbreak, the show follows Maggie Baird, (actress, screenwriter, vegan, and mother of musicians Billie Eilish and Finneas, who are also vegan) on her journey to create Support and Feed.
New Day New Chef bringing these chefs and celebrities together is a great way to focus on these wonderful restaurants, and the nourishing and delicious food they are providing to those in need through Support and Feed,” said Baird. “A plant-based diet is so important for the health of our communities and our planet. I hope this show and these chefs will inspire people, because there is no better day to start, than today.”
