“The Food Dialogues” Coming Next Week


The U.S. Farmers & Ranchers Alliance (USFRA) is hosting “The Food Dialogues” – a town hall-style discussion to address Americans’ questions about how their food is grown and raised and the long-term impact of the food they are eating – on their own health and the health of the planet.

These topics, as well as findings from recent surveys of farmers, ranchers and consumers conducted by USFRA, will all be discussed during interactive events taking place at four locations across the U.S. and online on September 22.

The Food Dialogues will include four panel discussions, featuring leaders in food, food service, media and policy, farmers of all types and business leaders, who will share different viewpoints about the current and future states of food, and how food is grown and raised.

We visited with National Corn Growers Association President Bart Schott about the effort…Schott serves as Secretary for the Alliance.

These discussions will take place at four U.S. locations including Washington, D.C., New York, the Midwest and California, as well as online via Facebook and USFRA’s new website, www.fooddialogues.com.

The panel discussion will initiate in Washington, D.C. at 10:30 a.m. CDT and will conclude with the final panel discussion taking place in California. The entire event will stream live online from 10:30 a.m. CDT through 4:00 p.m. CDT, providing opportunities for farmers, ranchers and the general public to register to watch and participate in the discussion online.
