Agriculture Issues That Affect Us All

Cover art for A Place at the Table DVDDo you wonder if it is safe to consume foods that have been genetically modified? Did you know that 50 million Americans are “food insecure” and don’t know where their next meal is coming from? Do you know what a “food desert” is and how it contributes to the obesity pandemic in this country? A clean and ample supply of food is vital to our well-being and it ought to be available to each of us.

The League of Women Voters is co-sponsoring a discussion of agricultural policies and issues, including genetically modified foods, corporate farming and food policy, and these sorts of questions will be addressed. Please join us for this event from 7-8:30 p.m. on Thursday, November 21 in the Friends Room at the Columbia Public Library if you’d like to inform yourself more about these issues.
