This week on The Morning After, Host Jessie Kiefer welcomes back Co-Host Sari Kamin after her European excursion! Erin Sylvester also joins the program for a special ode to a beloved restaurant. In the first half of the show, the duo bring on Katrina Moore, director of the documentary, Under the Mango Tree: Food, Health, and Love in Ghana. What started out as a school trip to Ghana, Katrina became inspired by a Ghanian doctor, Dr. Abdulai, struggling to care for his community against all odds. She then decided to turn the experience into a meaningful way to fulfill her Master's thesis in New York University's Food Studies program. After creating an IndieGogo account to raise necessary funds, the project has started to garner support from around the world. Check out the link here to contribute. Later, Sari shares all about her adventures eating around Europe! Tune in for a packed show. This program was brought to you by Whole Foods Market.

"The doctor [Dr. Abdulai] saw that the homeless tended to behave very wildly in the streets. They would steal food from the women in the markets...they would be very violent...so the doctor would see that and named it as hunger because he knew hunger. He grew up hungry on the streets of Tamale himself." [18:06]

"The title Under the Mango Tree comes from the doctor's first surgery at the clinic location... The first surgery performed before there were any buildings was performed under this huge mango tree that now provides food and shade and beauty to the clinic grounds." [22:31]

This week on Just Food Stories, Jacquie welcomes cookbook author Leanne Brown. Leanne takes a unique approach to her newest cookbook, Good and Cheap, a collection of recipes for people with limited incomes, particularly those on a $4/day food stamps budget. Jacquie asks Leanne to explain her reasoning behind authoring a cookbook with such a unique slant and also discovers the details that went into the regional planning (ingredient prices, recipes, etc) behind the work. Tune in to find out more about Leanne's Kickstarter program and how to download her cookbooks for free. This program has been sponsored by the International Culinary Center.

"I wanted to show that there's good, cheap food that can be modern, interesting stuff, very vegetable and fruit focused food." [6:22]

"We need to purchase things in their most raw state and add value to that at home through your cooking process - you can easily get by on very little money." [12:24]
