Food Dialogues Help in Effort to Address Concerns about Food Production

October 4, 2011

Last month, America’s farmers and ranchers – in an effort to lead a conversation and answer those questions – kicked off The Food Dialogues, the launch of a new effort to bring together different viewpoints on farming and ranching and the future of food. The effort was sponsored by the U.S. Farmers and Ranchers Alliance, of which NMPF is a member.

Four panels across the country, including Washington, D.C.; New York City; Fair Oaks, Indiana; and Davis, California, featured leaders and voices across the food spectrum, addressing American’s stated concerns about how their food is grown and raised.

While the discussion started on Sept. 22, it’s just the beginning a long-term effort and will continue at the website www.fooddialogues.com. Those who want to see the entire discussion or share comments can go there to join the conversation.
