Coming Back: Conversations on life after loss

Feb 5, 2020

In her book Extra Helping, Janet Reich Elsbach shares the beauty and bounty of receiving through food. This week, we’re talking about how to slow down and be more present while caregiving, how to stop tying receiving to “weakness” or “inability,” why food politics surrounding chemo, cancer, and health have no place in the meal train, and how food has the incredible power to give us our humanity back.

Janet’s work, book, and recipes!
