There just isn’t enough proof yet and there’s so much “up in the air” because it’s a relatively new technology, but that’s not stopping concerned Nutmeggers from voicing their concerns. A group of chefs, farmers, restaurateurs, and activists will be outside of the Hartford capitol building on 5/8 at 10 am to share how GMO foods should be labeled. They believe (and so do we) that we have the right to know what’s in our food. Many of the chefs, farmers, and restaurateurs will be providing tastings of their food to stir up activity and to bring the issue straight to Hartford. Participants are hoping to engage legislators and other officials in an open dialogue revolving around everybody’s favorite thing: food.
If you are a restaurant owner, a chef, or are in the restaurant business and support the labeling of GMOs, you can contact Tara Cook-Littman by e-mailing her at firstname.lastname@example.org. She’d love to have you on board with a tasting or providing samples of your food on May 8 in Hartford. Personally, we know many chefs and owners in Fairfield County who feel very strongly about this and we’d love to see them help represent us.
