Utah downwinder, advocate and playwright Mary Dickson is back from the ICAN Nuclear Ban Week in Vienna. Great Salt Lake news recap, FAQ and Lake Effect voices. Plus, Crossroads Urban Center's July Food Drive needs and Golden Celery Competition.

Hosted by Volunteer DJ Nick Burns, tonight's show featured the following people, organizations and/or events:

Bill Tibbitts of Crossroads Urban Center, which is hosting its annual July Food Drive and Golden Celery Competition.

  • The number of families and individuals needing help with food generally goes up during the summer but donations to help often go down during those months. That is why Crossroads Urban Center organizes a food drive every July, especially among the area's many religious congregations. The Golden Celery Competition aims to see who can donate the most food in July per person attending worship services. To learn more, reach out to Bill Tibbitts via email,
