On this episode, Trish Watlington and I talk about the effects of the pandemic on our local San Diego food industry, and ways to keep healthy, nutritious food on our tables.
How are our local restaurants, farmers and fishermen adapting to the restrictions in place right now? What is the way ahead for them when things get “back to normal?” What will normal look like?
Trish gives insight into local food organizations that are helping those in need and the best ways to donate and volunteer. Those are just a couple of topics we cover. There's much, much more!
