Public Panel Discussion of GMOs in our Food Crops

When: Sunday, January 24, 3pm

Where: United Methodist Church
6th Ave. & 8th St. in Park Slope.

The panel includes:
  • Dr. Michael Hanson, Consumers’ Union

  • Michael Potter, Eden Foods founder and CEO
Moderator: Joe Holtz, General Coordinator of the Park Slope Food Coop.

Citing the high level of confusion in the general population about GMOs (genetically modified foods), this forum will give anyone who eats the opportunity to hear some of the foremost experts on the topic and ask them questions.

The event will address the safety of GMOs; consumers’ right to know if their foods contain GMOs; and why there are no laws requiring the identification of GMOs on food product labels.
