Food, From Farm to Table to gives journalists an inside glimpse at where meals come from

Food, From Farm to Table, a four-day program for journalists that takes a look behind the scenes at where meals come from, will be held from July 19-22 in St. Louis. During the event, journalists will visit an organic farm and Monsanto’s research labs for a ground view of agriculture. Speakers will also give journalists an in-depth and balanced look at all facets of food and agriculture. 

The program will look at the following questions: How can we grow the food we need on the land we have? What innovations and technology will define the future of food sources? How does food move from field to processor to supermarket to table? How do we keep our food supply safe? And how does a nation of plenty have almost 50 million people struggling with hunger? The application deadline is May 28. For more information or to apply, click here.
