This week, "Art and Soul" is about the culinary arts, but due to the current coronavirus pandemic, most restaurants have had to figure out a new way to operate, and some have had to close.  WEMU's Lisa Barry and Jessica Webster talk about what your local dining options are and how you can support local grocery stores and restaurants in new ways, due to rising health concerns.

At this difficult time, Jessica reminds residents to not forget about their local restaurants.  Luckily, these establishments are getting some help, thanks to emergency funding set up by the Song Foundation.

If you still enjoy eating out, online delivery (using GrubHub, DoorDash, etc.) always works, but you should still check how the restaurants are currently operating on social media or their respective websites.
