Challenges and Realities of Feeding the World: GMO OMG

“GMO OMG director and concerned father Jeremy Seifert is in search of answers. How do GMOs affect our children, the health of our planet, and our freedom of choice?

And perhaps the ultimate question, which Seifert tests himself: is it even possible to reject the food system currently in place, or have we lost something we can’t gain back? These and other questions take Seifert on a journey from his family’s table to Haiti, Paris, Norway, and the lobby of agra-giant Monsanto, from which he is unceremoniously ejected.

Along the way we gain insight into a question that is of growing concern to citizens the world over: what’s on your plate?” (GMO OMG) We hope that the film and discussion with the filmmaker will stimulate lively discussion of important and contested food-related issues.

This event is co-sponsored by the School of Divinity’s Food, Faith, and Religious Leadership Initiative and is free and open to the public.
