We have several new efforts underway here in SF, and we need your help to implement them! We will be discussing their progress and next steps at our meeting. Please join us to see how you can help!
To give a brief overview, we decided at our last meeting that we would like to focus on the following activities:
Film series promoting awareness about GMOs and other related food issues
- Non-GMO Food Fest / Challenge Week - the idea is that we would have an event focused on GMO awareness featuring speakers, non-GMO foods, workshops, etc. During the following week, we would ask people to take a pledge to go non-GMO for a week. We would ask local restaurants to feature non-GMO items on their menus, and stores to feature non-GMO items sold.
- Development of multi-lingual educational materials
- Lobbying of local, state government/representatives
