Phil’s 4th Feed season is coming soon

Shortly starting its fourth season on Netflix on October 30th, the seed idea for Someone feeds Phil and its previous show, PBS ‘ What I have with Phil came from a Raymond episode.

The scenes at Rosenthal have fed others

Just a few weeks before his Netflix show kicks off his new season, Rosenthal announced his intention to feed others, especially during election season. According to the Rosenthal Family Foundation’s press release this month, the group has created “Somebody Feed the People (SFTP).”

According to the statement released, SFTP was “led by food and democracy enthusiasts Phil Rosenthal, with the aim of raising money for organizations that provide food for the People at the polls. ”

The former show runner’s statement this month continued, “Food is not just great clothes; it is also something that many of us take for granted. We thought election season would be the perfect time to take hunger off the table at least for one meal while people are at the polls.
