We talk to the author of a book about how religious traditions shaped many of the foods we eat today. Then, we learn more about the need for volunteers and the benefits for retirees to participate.

How the foods we eat were shaped by religious movements
Food has a long history of helping people establish and celebrate their spiritual beliefs. We talk to the author of a new book looking at the historical connections between what we eat and what we believe.
Why we need more retiree volunteers
Volunteering after retirement has been proven to benefit your physical and mental health, in addition to benefiting your community. Still, only 21% of the country’s 70 million retirees volunteer. So why haven’t we been able to fully harness the power of such an experienced group? We talk to a philanthropy expert about the benefits of getting involved, and what we can do to make volunteering more accessible and appealing for seniors.
