FILM: The Future of Food
There is a revolution happening in the farm fields and on the dinner tables of America – a revolution that is transforming the very nature of the food we eat. The Future of Food offers an in-depth investigation into the disturbing truth behind the unlabeled, patented, genetically engineered foods that have quietly filled U.S. grocery store shelves for the past decade.
STACEY HALL, activist and volunteer at Institute for Responsible Technology will introduce the film and will moderate our forum next week on the proposed legislation for labeling GMO food.

THE LABEL GMO INITIATIVE EXPLAINED
The California initiative requiring the labeling of genetically modified food will be on the November 6 ballot. STACEY HALL explains the proposed legislation for labeling GMO food, and it’s importance to our health, environment and sustainability.
The Institute for Responsible Technology is a world leader in educating policy makers and the public about genetically modified (GM) foods and crops. It investigates and reports their risks and impact on health, environment, the economy, and agriculture, as well as the problems associated with current research, regulation, corporate practices, and reporting.
