In a sprawling, not-always-so-united United States, local practices and foodways are indispensable for not only sustainability but also resiliency, especially in the era of COVID-19. For this panel, we’ll shine a light on some ways to preserve important local community foodways, including some that are under imminent threat of disappearing forever.
