Farm to Table: Where Your Food Comes From

There are just 2 million farms in the U.S. that help feed the world. Everybody eats, so why has food become fraught with controversy? Over four days, journalists will learn about food labeling, growing methods, GMOs, pesticide and herbicide use, agriculture research, antibiotics, organics, sustainability and government policy. Included will be field trips to DuPont Pioneer’s research facility and a high-tech hog facility. This free, four-day program will be held May 14-17 in Des Moines, Iowa.

The all-expenses-paid fellowship covers airfare, ground transportation, hotel costs and most meals. NPF offers this professional development opportunity for journalists to enhance skills, increase knowledge and recharge their reporting on one of today’s most critical issues. This program is for U.S. based journalists only.

Funding for this training is provided by DuPont Pioneer, the National Pork Board, the American Farm Bureau Federation and Organic Valley.

Applications for Farm to Table: Where Your Food Comes From have now closed. Please check back for the announcement of the fellows.
