Yesterday out of the Twittersphere popped this headline, “Whole Foods Will Require Mandatory GMO Labeling by 2018” , the Huffington Post added additional detail. This is a huge statement and will encourage institutions and political leaders that were on the fence about GMO Labeling legislation to take action!

Wenonah Hauter, the founder and driver behind Food and Water Watch, the consumer watch group that focuses on corporate and government accountability in regard to food, water and fishing will be in Winnetka on March 17, signing her book, Foodopoly, at The Book Stall, 811 Elm St. from 2-4pm. The book focuses on the control of food production by a handful of large businesses.
