As our food system has rapidly evolved over the past few decades, issues surrounding where our food comes from and what it contains have become mainstream, often politicized, debates. However, when debating something like organic versus genetically modified food, which communities are included in the dialogue and who benefits when decisions are made? Can producers and consumers work together to make sure high quality food is accessible to everyone?
This week, I'm heading to Kansas City, Missouri to focus on these issues with people who are passionate about what's on their plates and how it got there. In collaboration with member station KCUR and Harvest Public Media, the two-part live event will feature dynamic storytelling and live performances. We will also take the discussion to social media with an engaging Twitter chat all about how we eat.
Make sure to come back to this page on Tuesday to watch a video live stream of the event in Kansas City at 8 p.m. ET.

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for. If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
