Discussion of GMO foods program set for July 15, Dimmitt

Monday, July 07, 2014

A program explaining the role of genetically modified organism (GMO) foods in the U.S. food supply is set for July 15 in Dimmitt.

Nancy Andersen, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service (AgriLife) agent, said: “We (consumers) are constantly bombarded with information regarding GMOs to the point that it’s hard to know what to believe.” The purpose of the program is to help the public discern fact from fiction and in turn to make informed decisions in food choices, according to AgriLife Today.

The program includes a meal and begins at noon. It is free and open to the public. Andersen encourages youth to attend as they will play an important part in the future in feeding the world.

For more information, contact Andersen at 806-647-4115 or email nancy.andersen@agnet.tamu.edu.
