The virtual fall school semester begins this week for many students,  which means bringing their  laptops or tablets to the kitchen table. Zach Brooks has a repertoire of meals for lunch breaks. Clemence Gossett makes a shopping list and offers tips on meal prep. Plus,  food-insecure students are getting meals via grab and go options through the LAUSD and the USDA Farmers to Families food boxes. Finally, KCRW takes a virtual vacation to the Greek island of Crete.
