Series produced by WFIU

Earth Eats is a weekly, one hour radio program about food and farming. We share the freshest news and recipes inspired by local food and sustainable agriculture.

Earth Eats is storytelling, recipes, farm visits, and kitchen sessions. We have conversations with scholars, chefs, growers, and food justice organizers. We hear from authors, artists, scientists, poets, and people who love to eat.

Earth Eats brings you updates from our own reporters and our partners at Harvest Public Media, a reporting collective covering agriculture in the American heartland.

From sustainable growing practices to workers' rights in meatpacking plants, from community orchards to fair trade chocolate factories, Earth Eats explores food access, inequities, connections, and critiques. We revel in textures, aromas and flavors, while challenging harmful food systems. We share baking tips, gardening secrets, serious issues, and comfort food.

Find our recipe videos on the Earth Eats YouTube channel
We also keep tabs on the latest food-related headlines on our blog, Facebook Instagram 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.
