Slow Food and GMO Labeling

A new bill requiring the labeling of genetically modified foods has gained strong support from the Vineyard community. On Sunday, more than 100 people attended the annual Farmer’s Brunch in Chilmark, which focused on the controversies surrounding genetically modified organisms in the United States. Sponsored by Slow Food Martha’s Vineyard, part of the Slow Food USA network, the brunch was prepared using all GMO-free ingredients, many of which were organic and locally sourced. The four speakers drew from their personal experiences in farming or advocacy to talk about the anti-GMO movement.
