October 24th is Food Day. Food Day is a nationwide celebration of healthy, affordable and sustainably produced food and a grassroots campaign for better food policies. Celebrate this year at an educational forum on genetically engineered foods at the Montclair Public Library.
Over 70% of grocery store food contains GMOs and 93% of Americans want them labeled. Learn about GMOs as well as GMO labeling bills in the NJ Legislature and Congress.
Our panelists will discuss everything from what are GE foods, to why we want them labeled, and what you can do about it.
– Assemblywoman Linda Stender, primary sponsor of a bill that would require labels for genetically engineered foods in NJ.
– Camille Miller, Executive Director of the Northeast Organic Farming Association of New Jersey
– Jim Walsh, NJ Director for Food & Water Watch
When: Thursday, October 24, 2013 6:30 PM to 9:00 PM
