The new U.S. Farmers and Ranchers Alliance (USFRA) website, www.fooddialogues.com, is live! Americans have a lot of questions about how their food is raised, the impact on their health and the health of the planet. Today, it seems there are more questions than answers. USFRA created Food Dialogues to answer these questions and more.
On Sept. 22, USFRA will also be holding Town Hall-style discussions to connect Americans interested in a dialogue about their food. Journalist moderator Claire Shipman and Chef John Besh will launch this new effort to bring together different viewpoints on farming and ranching and the future of food to solve our most challenging problems.
The Food Dialogues will be held in four locations: the Newseum in Washington, D.C., Chelsea Studios in New York City, UC-Davis Robert Mondavi Institute for Wine and Food Science in California, Fair Oaks Farm in Fair Oaks, Indiana, as well as virtually at www.fooddialogues.com.
The American Sheep Industry Association is a member of the alliance.
