RIGHT TO KNOW GE FOOD FORUM
Thursday March 21 7:00 – 8:30 PM
Greenwood Senior Center
525 N 85th St, Seattle, WA 98103
 
The bottom line is that all consumers have the right to know what’s in the food they eat. That is why Food & Water Watch is working to pass the ballot initiative I-522 to mandate the labeling of all genetically engineered food in the state of Washington.  Whether you’ve been studying up for years or you’re just wondering what all the buzz is about, join us at the Right to Know GE Food Forum on March 21st from 7 to 8:30 PM.
 
GE foods have been on our local grocery store shelves for over ten years without our consent or knowledge. With GE Salmon slated to hit the shelves soon, the debate over labeling has never been more urgent. The good news is that Washington voters get the chance to settle the debate this fall by voting yes on I-522.
 
We don’t get to vote until the fall but the discussion has already begun. Join us on March 21st to be a part of it. The forum will kick off with tables set up by local groups where guests can look at informational demos and eat local food. This will be followed by a panel discussion featuring Trudy Bialic of the Yes on I-522 campaign, Micaela Preskill, State Advocate for WashPIRG, Joe Rogoff, NW Regional President of Whole Foods, and Chris Bell, Sustainability Officer at Pike Place Fish.
