Another Food Dialogues Event Planned


The second Food Dialogues event will take place in Los Angeles June 20th and 21st. Four separate discussions will take place – bringing entertainment movers and shakers, chefs, academics, large restaurant operators, journalists, local leaders, farmers and ranchers together for an in-depth conversation about food. Bob Stallman – U.S. Farmers and Ranchers Alliance Chairman and American Farm Bureau Federation President – says Los Angeles was selected as the venue because of the influence the region and its opinion leaders have on popular culture and trends that affect the entire nation – including how food is viewed. Stallman says the discussions will move the conversation forward about how food is grown and raised – but also give those in the ag industry an opportunity to learn more from consumers about their needs and expectations for the food-growing industries.

USFRA is going to announce a full list of panelists ahead of the Los Angeles event. Two of the panel discussions will stream live on the web Wednesday, June 20th and Thursday, June 21st from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. Central time. Farmers, ranchers and the general public can register to watch and participate in the discussion online. Those with a Twitter account can follow all of the panel discussions by following @USFRA using #FoodD. All of the panel discussions will be available on the Internet – if not live then taped – at www dot fooddialogues dot com (www.fooddialogues.com).

Wednesday’s live streamed panel is titled Hollywood and Vine: The Intersection of Pop Culture and Food Production. The afternoon session is Meeting of the Minds: Touring Hollywood’s Urban Farm. On Thursday – the live panel is The Great Debate: Science, Technology and Food. The final panel is The REAL Chef Challenge: Understanding How Food is Grown and Raised.
