Last night in Bellingham Washington, I attended the Bellingham premiere of GMO OMG. At the Pickford Film Center. Guess what I saw parked out in front of the theatre?
A Fishy Sugar Beet car! Here is more about the fishy food car campaign:
Adrienne Battis from Bellingham COOP www.communityfood.coop and Steve Crider from Amy’s Kitchen http://www.amys.com/ below. Steve explained during the panel discussion that the reason that frozen pizza you buy in a store will be labelled whereas Pizza in a restaurant won’t is because food service doesn’t require food to be labelled. Food service is a separate category. Why would we ask for labelling where there isn’t? We don’t want to complicate our lives. Just like we don’t require restaurants to label ingredients on the menus.
Yes on 522 has simple GMO labelling guidelines. For human food. Bought in the store.
In addition to NON GMO popcorn, I was pleased to find fair trade organic chocolate for sale. Yay Pickford Cinemas http://www.pickfordfilmcenter.org/
Sara Southerland, for Sustainable Connections http://sustainableconnections.org/. Sara drove the Fishy Sugar Beet car! That’s about as cool as it gets.
