On July 1st Vermont will become the first state in the nation to require labels on genetically engineered foods!
This victory will be the culmination of years of hard work by advocates, legislators and citizens across the state. Thanks to Vermont’s labeling law, national food manufacturers General Mills, Kellogg, Con Agra, Campbell’s and Mars have announced they will be labeling all their food, nationwide.
This is a huge win for the state of Vermont and we want you to come celebrate it with us!
On July 1st from 12:00-2:00pm we’ll gather on the State House lawn to celebrate this major milestone in food system transparency and to hear from some of the activists, farmers, food producers, policymakers and others who helped make GMO labeling a reality in Vermont. There will also be a number of family friendly activities including speakers, live music, a photo booth, games and some original live performances.
In the event of rain we will be gathering in rooms 10 and 11 inside the State House.
Bring a lunch, and come join us for this celebration of Vermont’s labeling law and the people that helped make this happen!
