We get a little wild this week, and bring you a veritable cornucopia of stories that run the gamut. We'll visit a food bank that's in full swing amidst the boutiques and high-end restaurants of a Delaware beach town. We'll head out with an artist who's trying to break the ice with strangers — by painting their portraits. And we'll take a culinary voyage to West Africa, as we continue our "Eating in the Embassy" series.
