Label to Table: Navigating the Landscape
W est Jersey Sierra Club will host Healthy Eating in a Junk Food World, a discussion about genetically engineered foods (GMOs), their accompanying agricultural chemicals and healthy food awareness, at 7:30 p.m., January 13, at Haddonfield Friends Meetinghouse.
Speakers Barbara Thomas and Keith Monahan, of GMO Free NJ, will answer questions about the current status of GMOs and how they affect our health, our children, the environment and our future. Attendees will learn which foods to avoid, what to seek out and how to navigate the supermarket. Thomas and Monahan will also discuss the latest news about GMO labeling and how to help with this issue.
“Together we will explore ways to regain true food sovereignty so that we can all make informed choices for ourselves and our families while contributing to a sustainable future for all,” says Thomas.
