Fiona, Cincinnati’s baby hippo, is back in the news. Last month, a local brewery made a beer to raise funds for the animal, who was born prematurely. This week, Cincy-based Graeter’s ice cream dedicated a special flavor and all its proceeds to the city’s zoo. Over in New York City, food waste is on the minds of business owners as the NYC Food Waste Fair is approaching.

The flavor can be found at local Graeter’s locations and online.
