“GMO OMG” Film Screening

How do GMOs affect our children, the health of our planet, and our freedom of choice? Is it possible to reject the industrial food system currently in place, or have we lost something we can’t gain back? These questions take documentary film director Jeremy Seifert on a journey from his family’s dinner table in California to Haiti, Paris, Norway, and ultimately to the lobby of agra-giant Monsanto, from which he is unceremoniously ejected. Along the way we gain insights into a question of growing concern to citizens around the world: what's on your plate? After the film, Sara Heald of GMO FREE PA will be on hand to discuss the film and answer your questions.
