On this week’s installment of Let’s Eat In, Cathy Erway is joined in the studio by Nicole J. Caruth of With Food in Mind, an organization driven to educate about food through the arts. Listen in to Nicole talk about her background in the art world, and why so many contemporary artists choose food as their muse. Hear about some artists that have used food and art as a means to create social change. How have iPhones changed the art of food photography? Later, Nicole and Cathy talk about With Food in Mind’s after-school program launch, and what it means for black and Latino children in New York City. Tune in to hear discussions about freeganism, as well as Let’s Eat In’s signature date meal question. This episode was sponsored by Hearst Ranch.
“When people think of dumpster diving, they think of food that has rotted already. A lot of times grocery stores and restaurants are required to throw out food that is perfectly fine to consume.” — Nicole J. Caruth on Let’s Eat In
