"Eating in the New Millenium" is a series of public dialogues in the KC
Metro area, taking place during the week of March 27-31. These informative
sessions will address current trends in agriculture production and food
retailing, as they relate to the health and nutrition of consumers. All
events are free, and open to the public. The exciting, discussion-style
format will allow for questions and comments between the audience and

"The dialogs will address current trends in agriculture production and food
retailing, as they relate to health and nutrition of consumers," said Thomas
Kerr, of the Food Circles Networking Project. "Food is a basic commonality
for all life, and the choices we make as 'eaters' effect the health of rural
and urban communities, the environment, as well as our families."

Leading the discussions will be Dr. Carol Geisecke, Food Nutrition and
Health Specialist, Lincoln University, and Dr. William Heffernan and Dr.
Mary Hendrickson, both of the Dept. of Rural Sociology, University of
Missouri - Columbia. 

 "This presentation will help families learn ways to participate in the
alternative food system, so that they can become active in community
gardening, shopping at farmers markets, eating at restaurants using local
products, and increase their general awareness of this dynamic focus on
food," said Thomas Kerr. "We are helping to build a strong base of supply
and demand for local foods, that will help sustain small farms and rural
communities, while helping urban neighborhoods increase access of fresh
produce, meats and other food products."
