Growing Forward: Curt Ellis

Recipient of a 2012 Second Nature Climate Leadership Award. One of eight colleges across the country to receive an "A" on the 2011 College Sustainability Report Card.

When Curt Ellis left Iowa after creating the Peabody-winning documentary King Corn, something didn’t sit right – and it wasn’t just the home-brewed highfructose
corn syrup he’d consumed. Join Curt for a lively multimedia presentation as he shares the journey that led him to leave film making and join with a group of colleagues to launch FoodCorps: a national service organization that is changing the way children relate to food. The event is free of charge, and open to the public. It will be held on February 24th in the Lang Auditorium at the University of Northern Iowa from 7-9pm.
