Chances are if growing corn wasn't made so profitable by the ethanol industry and it's government kickbacks, the farmers would choose to grow other stuff which may or may not be food products.

Also, slowly, ethanol is being developed from other sources of biomass. Some countries exist completely on alcohol (Brazil) and very little of theirs is actually produced from corn. We only choose corn because so far it's cheap and easy. Other sources in development might change those economics.
