Segment 1: Ohio has about 600 farm markets, roadside markets, farmers' markets and pick-your-own produce vendors. In today's society of speed and convenience, where "super centers" are the norm, it would seem that farmers' markets would be a tough sell. Instead, markets are growing almost faster than the produce you can buy there. Ohio is home to a broad array of locally grown produce, including apples, many types of berries, beans, sweet corn, tomatoes and much more. At a market, you can buy some of these foods just hours, even minutes, after they were picked. Kathy Rhoads of Rhoads Farm Market and Jennifer Fralic, a dietitian with LifeCare Alliance, discuss why it's important to find a fresher product that is healthy and nutritious just as it comes.
Segment 2: Foodbanks offer a lifeline to those who are hungry. The number of seniors served through food pantries continues to rise each quarter as more seniors struggle to pay for basic necessities on low fixed incomes. Lisa Hamler-Fugitt, the executive director of the Ohio Association of Second Harvest Foodbanks, and Vince Chase, the executive director of the Foodbank of Clark, Champaign & Logan Counties, describe how their organizations can help.
Segment 3: People sometimes assume that women are the only ones caring for their loved ones. Many husbands find themselves thrust into a lifestyle that may be drastically different from the one they are accustomed to, but they make sacrifices and hard choices out of love. Bill Keating shares his story as a faithful and loving caregiver prior to his wife's death.
