In this episode, the last one in Season 2 (the dessert episode, you might say), join me (Liana) as I try to get to the bottom of the mysteries behind my family's secret chocolate chip cookie recipe.
Ep.10 Feeding the Future
Many Jewish institutions are facing a decline in young adult engagement compared to that of older generations. Could food and land-based programming be the solution? Hear from returning and new guests about how they get young people through the door (virtually and irl), and how previously disengaged Jews are finding community and connection through Jewish outdoor, food, farming, and environmental education (JOFEE) programs.

Ep.7 Food Security Part 3: Welcome to the Food Hub
The third and final part in this season's series on food security is all about Jewish Family Services of Vancouver's new food hub! What's a food hub? How's it different from a food bank? Where did JFS get the idea? All these questions and more are answered in today's episode as we learn about this big transformation in JFS's approach to food security.
Be sure to check out the hub's Grand Opening event on April 18th.
Ep.6 Food Security Part 2: A Human Voice
In this episode, Part 2/3 on food security, hear from two clients of Jewish Family Services about their lived experiences of food insecurity, from the circumstances that brought them to rely on the food bank to how we can provide support as a community.
Please note that this episode includes discussions of chronic illness and gender-based violence.
Such a great reminder that food is about so much more than just fats, carbs, and proteins. The people interviewed in this series have all had such interesting lives. It's wonderful that we get to get to come along for the journey!
A really enjoyable listen
I'm not Jewish and I find these really great. The stories are universal and compelling especially if you're into food. Easy to recommend.
Compelling and a delight to listen to
Digestible and delightful stories of Jewish food traditions that I wouldn't have known about without this podcast
