Earth Eats is a weekly, half-hour public radio program that brings you the freshest news and recipes inspired by local food and sustainable agriculture.

Our mission is to help people feel more connected to their food. Each week, host Kayte Young and Indiana chefs like Daniel Orr present recipes using seasonal ingredients. We also speak with small farmers, authors, academics and everyday people to get a holistic perspective on our food system. We keep close tabs on the latest food-related headlines on our blog, Facebook and Twitter. Find us at www.eartheats.org.

Earth Eats is a production of WFIU at Indiana University in Bloomington.

Earth Eats is available by annual carriage fee. For more information please contact LuAnn Johnson, Syndication Manager at lujohnso@indiana.edu, 812-855-2019.
