Feeding the Hudson Valley (Aired on October 1 and 2, 2016)

Margot Schulman, manager of The Lunch Box for Dutchess Outreach, and  Rich Schiafo, deputy executive director of the Hudson Valley Regional Council, tell RadioRotary about efforts to prevent food insecurity in the Hudson Valley, starting with an event at the Walkway Over the Hudson for which a number of local agencies are providing a free meal entirely made from “recused food.”  Rescued food may be food prepared for an event that was not utilized, food gleaned from farms after harvest, unserved restaurant food, or food removed from grocery shelves for one reason or another. Estimates are that 20% of food is wasted in the United States, while in Poughkeepsie more than half the students in elementary or high school are at a poverty level that makes them eligible for free lunches. Also in Poughkeepsie, The Lunch Box, which supplies free lunches and dinners, has many needy clients daily. Rescued healthy food can help the effort to reduce food insecurity.

Stop Dieting, Start Living and Enjoying Good Health (Aired on August 6 & 7, 2016)

Ellie Savory

Ellie Savory

Sarah O’Connell and Dave Kruger interview Millbrook Rotarian Ellie Savoy, author of the International Best-Seller Stop Dieting, Start Living: 5 Foundations for your Health to Permanently Lose Weight Without Dieting, Starvation, or Suffering in Silence, as well as portions of other self-help books. Ms. Savoy is a Board Certified Holistic Health Coach who not only coaches individuals, but also offers short courses. Her life took a turn for the better in 2011, when—30 pounds overweight—she face possible surgery, but decided to practice healthy eating and a better lifestyle instead. She has a lot of common-sense advice, which most of us would do well to follow. The basic program is to stop dieting and make the best choices in food and lifestyle. Exercise and sleep are also important, but should be routine rather than taking a special effort. Good health is everyone’s number-one asset in life, so make your own body your first priority.

Men Who Cook (Aired on April 9 & 10, 2016)

Men Who Cook

Men Who Cook

RadioRotary interviews Patterson Rotarian Mike Ingber about his club’s exciting fundraiser, Men Who Cook. Ingber is not only one of the organizers for the 20th installment of the popular event, but also one of the cooks, specializing in smoked salmon or ribs. This edition of Men Who Cook honors the Honorable James Reitz, judge of the family court in Carmel, NY, and of a drug court that helps addicts become rehabilitated rather than prisoners. Men Who Cook has about 15 professional chefs from local restaurants and about the same number of amateur foodies who man stations at the Star Ridge Banquet Center in Brewster. For a $70 entrance fee, you can patronize all of the stations featuring a variety of ethnic foods and American classics—but bring your own drinks and stemware. Everything else for a grand meal is provided. Patterson Rotarian Rich Parente, Owner/chef of the Clocktower Grill does a whole hog, which is spectacular.
