Rural Vermont, a foundin
g member of the Vermont Right to Know Coalition, invites everyone who cares about your right to know what’s in your food to join us for a rally in support of Vermont as we defend our new GMO Labeling Law.
Yesterday, the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) and a host of their industrial food corporate allies filed a lawsuit in federal court calling for Vermont’s GMO Labeling Law to be struck down.
The rally is being organized collaboratively by Ben & Jerry’s, the Governor’s Office, and the Vermont Right to Know Coalition. The goal of the rally is to demonstrate broad support for Vermont’s new GMO Labeling Law and to promote the Vermont Food Fight Fund.
Ben & Jerry’s will unveil a new ice cream flavor that will help support the VT Food Fight Fund and of course, free samples will be available.
