Food for Thought is back on the road, today. It's a short trip, just across the street from FM90. Chef Brett McCarthy, Administrative Program Coordinator of Culinary Arts, led us into the WIT's new Culinary Arts Program's kitchen classrooms – spotless stainless steel surfaces, walls and floors precisely tiled, refrigerators humming. It was enough to make our little hearts burst, a truly beautiful and inspiring space.

Gretchen speaks with Christina Luther, Girls Services Manager for Girl Scouts of Greater Iowa, about Girl Scout Cookies, icons of American culture for the past 100 years.  Selling cookies helps girls develop valuable life skills and make their communities a better place. Did you know there are only 2 bakeries licensed to make Girl Scout Cookies? One of them is Interbake (located right here in Siouxland!).
