The Dish II: GMOs & You
City Market and the Intervale Center have teamed up to create a new exploratory series called The Dish. With support from ArtsRiot, we’ll host quarterly panel discussions to dive into hot food issues with the help of local experts.
The Dish II: GMOs and You
Wednesday, May 21, 2014 (new date)
5:30pm – 7:00pm
ArtsRiot, 400 Pine St
Our exploratory series continues with an evening focused on genetically modified organisms. What is the role of genetic engineering in farming and the foods that end up on our shelves? What does the science tell us? How does corporate interest play a role? How should this technology be monitored and regulated? We'll unpack the issues surrounding the GMO debate and get clarity on what the everyday consumer should know. Now with an even longer Q&A session – come prepared with a question or two!
Sponsored by ArtsRiot
Doors open at 5:00pm with cash bar and free snacks from City Market.
