(article, Culinate staff)

Damaged waters and wetlands, after all, affect not just wildlife but fisheries and farms. The Southern Foodways Alliance, for one, has documented how the spill will affect fisherfolk on its blog. And the blog Gulf Coast Local Food has a list of associations and contacts for volunteers looking to help save the Gulf.
