Eating in a War Zone

Hosted by


Most of us understand how a good meal at the end of a stressful day can be relaxing and soothing. Imagine how important the concept of "comfort food" would be in a war zone.  Susan Marx, who returned from Baghdad early this year , is employed as an aide worker for the US Agency for International Development.  While in Iraq, she used food to get through the stress of being dangerously close to the chaos of war. She is currently in Kabul, Afghanistan where she continues her development work.
