It's paralyzing, isn't it? You plop the handbag down in the kid seat, and get to roving the aisles. All you need is some milk, chicken breasts, juice, cabbage, and maybe a little ice cream because hey, you deserve it, sister. But now you've got to navigate all of this: free-range, organic, sustainable, local, farm-raised, access to the outdoors, pasteurized, unpastureized, no, low, and half pulp!
Gah! Grab that handbag and get the hell out of there! The grocery store is a jungle, I tell you.
We all want to be more informed consumers, I think, but we also just want a quick dinner and a scoop (OK two) of ice cream and to go to bed. What are we supposed to do? Get sick in 20 years and wish we woulda chose the non-GMO more often?
Food Dialogues is here to help at least in some small way.
On August 11 at 5:30p.m. at the Mill City Museum, a panel of farmers and food executives will convene to discuss and answer your questions about environmental sustainability, GMO safety, animal welfare, methods used to grow and raise food, and health and environmental impacts, and ultimately to help make agriculture more accessible to you, the consumer.
Register here for the free event. If you can't make it, a video will be uploaded after the event.
