Greg Vandegrift, clinical faculty member in the emerging media department and lead adviser for TommieMedia, St. Thomas' student-run news organization, produced a KARE-TV Extra, "Lake City Rotary Club Rides Pandemic Cookbook Wave."

Reporting from Lake City, Minnesota, Vandegrift's story highlights how the town's rotary club came up with a "recipe to ride out the pandemic - a cookbook." A creative way to continue fundraising during quarantine, the cookbook isn't really just a recipes, which landed this small-town project in The New York Times.
