Event description

Description

Madison County Farm Bureau and the New York Beef Industry Counci in cooperation with the U.S. Farmers & Ranchers Alliance invite you to a screening of the important and intersting documentary, Food Evolution. The film features discussion with farmers, ranchers, agribusineess leaders, activists and the entertainment industry about today's polarized debate marked by fear, distrust and confusion: the controversy surrounding GMOs and our food.

Traveling from Hawaiian papaya groves, to banana farms in Uganda to the cornfields of Iowa, Food Evolution, from Academy Award -nominated director Scott Hamilton Kennedy, wrestles with the emotions and the evidence driving one of the most heated arguments of our time, GMOs. Food Evolution, is a fully independent investigation into biotechnology, intervieiwing experts on both sides of the aisle and including all points of view. Commissioned by the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT), the documentary shows how easily misinformation can overwhelm objective analysis. In the New York Times review of Food Evolution, Daniel Gold says, "With a soft tone, respectful to opponents but insistent on the data, 'Food Evolution' posits an inconvenient truth for organic boosters to swallow: In a world desperate for safe, sustainable food, G.M.O.s may well be a force for good."

Please join us on Tuesday, March 20 at the Kallet Civic Center in Oneida for the screening. Following the film, a panel of local producers will commence to discuss society's perception of GMOs and agriculture's role in sharing the story of biotechnology's environmental, nutritional and economic impact.

We look forward to seeing you there!
