Today we revisit a previous dispatch so Sandip can recover from the flu. 

In America, Sandip discovered coma-inducing lunches of all you can eat chicken tikka masala and saag paneer and naan for just 9.99. Well, what goes around comes around. The great Indian buffet has come to India - with a vengeance.

Prop 37: Labels for GMOs?

Today, many of the foods we eat come from Genetically Modified Organisms such as modified corn, wheat, and soy to make them grow more productively.  But do consumers have the right to know if the food they are buying at the grocery store contains GMOs?

Prop 37

Today on Your Call: Should genetically modified foods be labeled?

On today's Your Call, we’ll have a debate about Proposition 37. If it passes, California would become the first state in the country to require GMO labeling. Proponents have spent $3M to support labeling law, while multinationals like Monsanto and Pepsi have contributed over $28M to keep GMO labels off of food packages. Where do you stand? Join us at 10am PST or leave a comment here. What questions do you have about GMOs?  It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.

HEAR HERE: A POP-UP RADIO PROJECT

Hear Here: Meet Carlisle Haworth & Diana Hartman

San Francisco resident Diana Hartman remembers the lengths to which her family would go to accommodate her childhood distaste for cheese.

We've been meeting some of our neighbors in San Francisco and Oakland through our new community storytelling project, Hear Here: A Pop-Up Radio Project. Our Hear Here producers have been popping up in libraries, food banks, and schools to capture snapshots of life in these two cities, and we've been airing some of these stories on Crosscurrents. Hear Here met the two following San Francisco residents, Carlisle Haworth and Diana Hartman at the Polish Club in the Mission. They shared these stories about food from their childhood.
