Care About Where Your Food Comes From, Kansas City? Come To Our Live Event

Mar 30, 2016

The food on your kitchen table has a fascinating story.

At KCUR 89.3 and Harvest Public Media, we work every day to illuminate the hidden nooks and crannies within our food system and to bring you the voices of the people who make it run. Whether we’re talking to ranchers in Missouridiving into the debate over GMOs in Coloradotouring corn farms in Iowa, or exploring how to grow local food in the Midwest, we’re out in the field examining important topics.

Today’s food system is rapidly changing. That’s why NPR is visiting us in Kansas City, to present a live event called “How We Eat” on Tuesday, April 5. Produced in partnership with Harvest Public Media and KCUR 89.3, NPR will examine the links that connect us from farm to table.

If you’re in the area, join Michel Martin, weekend host of NPR's All Things Considered, for "How We Eat." It’s a live event with dynamic conversation and performance, centered around questions about what makes food “good” – for individuals, for the community, for the environment.

Tickets are available online here and the event will benefit both KCUR 89.3 and NPR.

If you’re not able to attend, never fear! KCUR 89.3, Harvest Public Media and NPR will be video streaming the event live on our website and we’ll be hosting a live Twitter chat. Watch the hashtag #NPRHowWeEat for the live chat on April 5.
