Arkansans planning to travel over the Thanksgiving holiday during a surging pandemic are being advised by the Arkansas Center for Health Improvement to safely celebrate at home instead and gather with loved ones remotely. But for those insisting on attending traditional family gatherings, ACHI recommends preparing in advance for safer holiday.

In honor of the Thanksgiving season, join us for a limited Community Spotlight series on Oral Food History Projects, produced by students from the University of Arkansas' Department of Agricultural Economics and Agribusiness.
