Farm Bureau members and non-members are invited to attend GMO Talks on Wednesday, May 6 at the Farm Bureau office. 

Kim Morton, a member of the Speakers Bureau will address the history, testing, and safety of GMO foods and farm products while answering questions from the audience.

GMOs are now found in up to 80 percent of the American food supply.  Today, food is less expensive for everyone because farmers produce more with lower overhead.  In the absence of GMO corn, soybeans and sugar beets, those crops would be 30 percent more expensive. In addition, GMOs have a far more sustainable environmental footprint, requiring less water and fewer pesticides.

The discussion will begin at 6 pm on Wednesday, May 6 at the Farm Bureau office located at 6438 Joliet Road in Countryside.  GMO Talks is a free program but reservations are required.  Call (708) 354-3276 by Friday, May 1 to reserve your spot.
