MANLIUS — Bureau County Farm Bureau Young Leaders and the Bureau Valley FFA will host a screening of “Food Evolution” beginning at 6 p.m. Monday, Nov. 19, in the Bureau Valley High School auditorium.
The screening is free for all members of the community and media to attend. Following the film, a small reception will be held to continue the discussion.
With the polarized debate marked by fear, distrust and confusion and the controversy surrounding GMOs (genetically modified organisms), “Food Evolution” sparks a fact-based public dialogue about today’s food system.
The film is a fully independent investigation into biotechnology, interviewing experts on both sides of the aisle and including all points of view. “Food Evolution” shows how easily misinformation can overwhelm objective analysis, touching on the following topics:
• Are consumers capable of applying science to emotionally charged topics?
• How do we ensure that GMOs and our food supply are safe for your health?
• Can we produce enough food to feed the world without harming the planet?
• Has genetically engineered food and fiber increased or decreased pesticide use?
Reservations for the showing are accepted by calling the Farm Bureau office at 815-875-6468.
