In our premiere episode, co-hosts Anna Van Valin and Lia Ballentine tell us why “Food stories are people stories.” Lia explores the food holiday that sparked her obsession: National Doughnut Day, created to celebrate the phenomenal Donut Lassies of World War I. In our first Deep Dish segment, Anna takes us down a quarantine-inspired rabbit hole into the world of survival food - and something called the US Civil Defense All-Purpose Survival Cracker. Welcome to Every Day is a Food Day!
