VPM Daily Newscast: May 7, 2020

Food pictures - home cooked dinner and dessert
From listener Dina Weinstein - a journalist who's also helping produce audio diaries from Virginia Union students - came photos of meals her son, a William & Mary student, is cooking during the coronavirus outbreak. She sent more photos, and while they all looked good, I took my two favorites - an assortment of Indian dishes and biscuits on berry syrup. (Photos: Dina Weinstein)
