Stateside: Wednesday, Dec. 21, 2022

Today on Stateside, we heard about an effort to support Ukrainians during the Russian invasion by celebrating their national cuisine. Then, we dig into the life and legacy of beloved Ann Arbor food institution Zingerman’s. To wrap up, we spoke with two Native American farmers about rebuilding access to traditional Indigenous foods in communities around the state.
