Melissa Clark wants you to just try a bite. ByMelissa Clark April 30, 2019 PORTLAND, Me.Justin Papkee scanned the surface of the ocean, searching for his buoys. But he wasn’t looking for lobster traps. Mr. Papkee was farming, not fishing: His crop, clinging to ropes beneath the cold waves, was seaweed, thousands of pounds of brownish kelp Estela, Houseman, Saint Julivert Fisherie and Luke’s Lobster in New York, and Honey Paw, Chaval and the Purple House here in Maine. He pulled a blade of kelp from his line and handed me a long, translucent strip. I took a bite, and then another, seawater running down my chin. I’d eaten plenty of … [Read more...] about The Climate-Friendly Vegetable You Ought to Eat

For many children, summer vacation means fun-filled days at the playground or the local pool. But for some, the warmer months are also filled uncertainty about where their next meal will come from. In Worcester, 77 percent of children are food insecure, qualifying for free or reduced-price school meals. Statewide, 400,000 students are eligible.
