While many hosts focused on how people with questions could use CommonGround volunteers and the group's website to find information, the women also responded to a variety of specific questions about production practices, technology and the difference between the wide variety of food choices available to American consumers.
In response to a question about the growing popularity of organic foods, Reese explained that CommonGround volunteers include farmers who use both traditional and organic methods.
"While we embrace the diversity of agriculture, we do want to offer information about how all kinds of food are grown so that shoppers can make the best choices for their unique family based on solid information," Reese said. "Whether organic or traditionally grown, America's farmers grow and raise an array of healthy, nutritious foods that consumers can feel confident about feeding their families."
