King Corn won a Peabody Award for its depiction of “Ellis and his best friend…on a year-long odyssey to understand where their food comes from by planting and harvesting an acre of genetically modified corn in Iowa.” Mr. Ellis is also the co-creator of FoodCorps and tours the country speaking at schools and conferences about the relationship between people, food, and the environment. His talk is entitled “Ask Not What Your Country Can Feed You — Ask What You Can Feed Your Country” and is free and open to the public. To get more details, click here.
