What do people eat when the economy nosedives? Can we learn from what Americans ate during the Great Recession? Do Depression menus have lessons for the economic transitions ahead as shrinking energy availability undermines the specialized, global economy that we depend on for our food? Mark Kurlansky has collected Depression food stories in a new book, The Food of a Younger Land.
Produced by Relocalizing Vermont Productions. Music by Pete Sutherland; voiceover by Jo Chickering.
