World Food Day has finally arrived! This Sunday, October 16 is slated to be the biggest day of action for labels on Genetically Engineered Foods in US history! Our loyal members and intrepid food activists have planned over 100 events nationwide. Our goal is that after October 16th, 2011 everyone in the nation will know and understand the health risks and environmental hazards of GMOs.
But in order to get the media, our legislators, and the Biotech industry to heed our call for labeling, we need numbers! We need everyone out in the street supporting your local events. Can you lend your voice to protect our food supply? Will you be there on October 16th?
Here is the list of events we currently have in your area. We realize that some event information is missing. If you have questions or would like to help with specific events, please contact the event organizers listed for each event.
