Kids are back in school.  Vacations are done until the holidays.

Thanksgiving is far enough away that no one if freaking out about it  yet.
Save Halloween, October might be the non-holidayest month there is.
And in comes Non-GMO Month.

It was created by the Non-GMO Project in 2010 as a platform for raising awareness on the GMO issue.
People across the country are waking up to the issues associated with GM foods,
and discovering the risks GMOs pose to our health, our families, and our planet.
As we told you here, GROW started labeling all existing items in the store with a
GMO Alert and pledged to no longer bring in any item that cannot confirm its GMO cleanliness.

All month long we’ll be giving away copies of the Non-GMO Cookbook,
running weekly specials on Non-GMO Project Verified and other Organic items,
and having some fun with fans on our Facebook Page.
We encourage everyone to participate with us in some way.

There are lots of ways for you to get involved. Luckily your local store is registered for Non-GMO Month;)
You might want to pledge to choose only Non-GMO Project Verified foods for the month of October.
Or you could get  involved with our friends over at LabelGMOs.org to get involved with GMO labeling initiatives in Southern California.
If you haven’t heard of GMOs, maybe you can make this the month to do some reading up on the issue.

I like to think of these kind of things like this- Doing one more thing this month than you did last month is a success.
We’ll be celebrating all month.  Hope you can join us.
