Rescuing Food with Waste Less Solutions
Most people are aware that in the process of preparing or handling food there is a certain amount of waste, but the actual amount of wasted food may be much greater than most of us realize. In this episode Laura Holtrop Kohl from the HEAL Program, and Adam Kreisel from Waste Less Solutions join us to talk about this issue, the great work they're doing to rescue potentially wasted food, and how they provide it to those who need it.

Returning to Physical Activity Post-COVID
It seems the only reliable thing about the nature of COVID is how differently it affects the people that have it. Some who have had COVID are able to get right back into their workout routine seemingly without missing a beat. However, for others returning to activity, or becoming active, can be more of a struggle. In this episode Dr. Brett McIff joins us to discuss what we've learned so far about being physically active post-COVID.

In this episode Dr. Brett McIff joins us to talk about some of the many reasons we should all be outside getting active, enjoying spring, and moving more this May.
