Woodstock, Monadnock Food Co-op and You: Learn, Share, Grow Team Non-GMO
In the United States, 80% of processed food is likely to be genetically modified, and not everyone is sure how to identify which foods are genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and which are not. This May, our co-op is teaming up with Woodstock to help raise awareness about GMOs. We’re making it our mission to build a team; a team of farmers, retailers and citizens. We know that together, we can make a difference. It’s up to us to LEARN the facts, SHARE information, and help GROW Non-GMO!
Stop into the Monadnock Food Co-op anytime this month and enter to win a Woodstock wagon and receive a dollar off coupon for any Woodstock product. You can also visit Woodstock’s website to win additional prizes, LEARN about GMOs, SHARE information, and help GROW Team Non-GMO.
