(CNN) – Welcome to CNN Radio News Day.
Here are some of the stories we cover in today's edition:
"We pump tofu throughout the plant, just like you would pump water. It's a lot like Willie Wonka's chocolate factory. I guess it's Willie Wonka's tofu factory", says Seth Tibbot, founder and president of Turtle Island Foods, home of the famous Tofurkey.
"There's no question that these negotiations over the Fiscal Cliff are happening at the worst time", says Kathy Graniss of the National Retail Federation.
"When I see a big grown man crying, it hits hard to see that", says Sister Joan Hogan as she fights back tears because there isn't enough food to be able to give to everyone who comes to her center for help.
