Support the Labeling of GMOs and Win Whole Food Supplements ($589 Combined Value!)

With the vote on proposition 37 looming in California, the debate on labeling GMOs is growing stronger with an ever more fervent pitch.  There’s a lot of money being spent to oppose the mere labeling of GMOs in California. Should Proposition 37 pass in California, it would likely affect the labeling of GMOs on food products sold in the US, outside of California, too.  And finally, Americans will have a clearer picture of the foods they choose to consume.

The Fight to Label GMOs (and what you can do)

The companies that oppose labeling of GMOs (including the parent companies of many of your favorite natural and organic foods brands) have contributed over $34 million against Proposition 37 in California.  Proponents of labeling have only been able to contribute a fraction of that amount which is why we need you – not only to drum up support and awareness of the fight to label GMOs, but also to financially support the fight as well.

For this reason, many of your favorite real and traditional foods bloggers have paired up with companies that do not use GMOs and support the labeling of GMOs to bring about awareness of Proposition 37 and increase the financial solvency of the fight to get GMOs labeled in California.  And it’s a fight that affects all of us, whether you live in California or not.

What people are saying

  1. says

    I didn’t donate but I DO support the labeling of GMO’s. I’d love to know more specifically what is in the foods we’re purchasing so that we can make a more informed decision as consumers.

  2. lauren says

    The labeling of GMO’s is a crucial step in freeing ourselves from the government’s tight hold on our foods. We have the right to know!!!

  3. Betsy says

    We have to start knowing what we eat, from start to finish. Everyone should be given the knowledge to decide if they want GMO or not. This isn’t a decision that should be made for me by the suppliers.

  4. Ayrielle says

    I want to know what is in the food I am feeding my children, and the effort required right now to research is becoming overwhelming. I will continue to do my research and buy what is best for my family, but labeling would make it much easier for everybody to know.

  5. says

    Thank you for this opportunity. I so enjoy your newsletters and can now follow on google+.
    We absolutely must have gmo labeling. GMO products are being disguised every day. It is to our family,
    friends and everyone who cares about their health extremely important to know what we consme.

  6. Monica says

    I support the labeling of GM foods. Wherever possible, I believe in buying whole foods from farmers I know, but it is upsetting to think of unknowingly purchasing unlabeled genetically modified foods at the store.

  7. Leslie Talley says

    I didn’t donate but I do support Prop 37 because the health of my children (and future grandchildren) depend on it.

  8. says

    GMO’s feed what I like to call the Monoculture-pharmaceutical complex. This terrible loop of poor design causes so much devastation and problems in the health of the soil, animals, people, and nation. THIS IS WHY I, Jeremy Kaufman, AM FOR THE LABELING OF GMO’S. Everyday we vote with the purchases we make. Labeling GMO’s will provide a rift in that daily vote, changing the consumer mindset, thus driving the market and supply chain toward a local food model. This is the first step toward better tasting, higher quality food for everyone.

  9. Kiki Bacaro says

    I’m sorry I cannot donate at this time:/ I support labeling GMO’s because I want to know what the heck I am feeding my family.

  10. Kari says

    We all deserve to know what’s in our food. Whether or not people choose to eat non GMO or not there needs to be that information available! I do support Prop 37!

  11. Tammy Kidd says

    I also support the labeling of GMO’s. It’s past time Americans (and the rest of the world) were aware of what they were ingesting. Food choices are so critical. We can eat the best medicine or the worst poison, and many times we are ingesting poison without even being aware of it. We have the right to know!!

  12. says

    I’m in support of labeling GMO’s and anything else that is harmful to our health. We’ve gone way too long wondering what is in our food and what it all means! Thank you for getting the word out!
    Not able to donate at this time…but my donation is getting the word out with education via social media.

  13. Christopher says

    I support labeling of GMO’s for everywhere not just CA. We Have a Right to Know What’s in Our Food,  Fifty countries around the world—representing more than 40% of the world’s population—already require GMO labeling, including all of Europe, Japan, India and China. We are free to choose what we want to eat and feed our children. The free market is supposed to provide consumers with accurate information about products so we can make informed choices

  14. Shirley Quick says

    I support GMO labeling and I feel so much better eating more fresh foods and organic, I love my garden. I believe we all have a right to know about our foods

  15. Cara says

    GMO foods are responsible for the poor health of our country. There are other things that contribute too but we as consumers have a right to know what goes into our bodies and the bodies of our children. Monsanto is paying to hide something that is detrimental so they can keep making money.

  16. says

    Shopping for groceries should not be like walking through a mine field. We all have a right to know exactly what we are eating and putting into our bodies. Our RIGHT. Just label it.

  17. says

    I am new to all this and have really just started learning about GMO’s in the past couple of weeks. I am appalled that this isn’t more common knowledge. Labeling is only the first step!!!!!

  18. BlessedCP says

    Because GMO foods are banned in other countries and have been proven to affect other crops and beneficial wildlife, I am concerned about putting it in my body. I deserve to know if a food is GMO and it should be labeled so.
    I didn’t donate but I DO support the labeling of GMO’s.

  19. Lydia C says

    I want everyone to start being aware of how their foods are ‘engineered’ rather than grown. Too many people live in ignorance of this fact, and the labeling of GMOs is the first step toward a more educated population.

  20. says

    I would love to see this pass, I think having it labeled will force people to realize how much GMO products we have out there. I know for me, if it was labeled so I could see easily, I would not buy it ;-) I am sure I have accidentally bought stuff with GMO not realizing it. This is one of the few times I wish I still lived in CA so I could vote for it ;-)!

  21. Tammy says

    We need to know what is in our food, especially if it is dangerous. Why the secrecy, if there is nothing wrong with it?

  22. Lauren says

    I so look forward to the day when we can make informed choices about what to put in our bodies. Labeling GMOs is a must!

  23. Jessica says

    Looking forward to the day when gmo’s are labeled! Thank goodness for ca taking them on. Hopes that all states will follow.

  24. susan says

    I am in favor of labeling GMOs. I believe we should have the right to know what we are spending our money on and eating!

  25. Beth says

    I do not understand how anyone can support the argument against labeling. Doesn’t everyone deserve to know what they’re putting in their bodies? This is one area where I truly believe the more we know, the more empowered we are to own our own health.

  26. Rebecca says

    I support the labeling of GMOs because I want to do everything I can to protect myself and my family from their scary side effects.

  27. Ruth says

    It is irresponsible to not label GMOs. They affect our health. We must have honesty in the presentation of an item so that we can make informed decisions and choices.

  28. Lisa says

    I was first introduce to the start of prop 37 a couple years ago at our local Mother’s Market, I had no idea what it was and started researching. Now I’m a huge supporter and trying to bring my friends on board!

  29. pixiepunk says

    I support labeling of GMO’s because I am a mom of 3 kids, and I want them to grow up GMO free. I live in a rural area where buying organic isn’t always possible without driving a long way, and I want to know what I have available to me locally that is at least free of GMO

  30. shanna boatler says

    it’s amazing to me how much money is being spent and how hard these companies are fighting to NOT have their GMOs labeled. what are they trying to hide…..hum??? it’s our right to know what is in our food and our choice to buy them or not.

  31. Jessica T says

    I can’t afford to donate. But I definitely support prop 37 and have tried my best to tell my family and friends in Ca to vote YES on it, so hopefully they will! While this is a great starter, I feel the exemptions in this bill were a horrible idea. But I also feel that at least it is bringing GMO to light for those who have never given it a thought! We need to educate people in order to make changes.

  32. linda says

    As Michael Pollen writes: “Over the last four years I’ve had occasion to speak to several people who have personally lobbied the president on various food issues, including G.M. labeling, and from what I can gather, Obama’s attitude toward the food movement has always been: What movement? I don’t see it. Show me. On Nov. 6, the voters of California will have the opportunity to do just that.”

    Let’s join the 60+ other countries who already label their GMO food, and send a message to companies like Monsanto – if your GMO products are special enough to receive patent protection from the US government, then they’re special enough to require labels for the US consumer.

  33. Shawna says

    I do not have the money to donate, but I wholeheartedly support the labeling of GMO’s. As consumers, we have every right to know what is in the food that we buy and consume! If they were good for you it wouldn’t even be an argument and the food companies would have labeled it away to sell more product, but the fact that they are toxic and harmful means that they will continue to fight tooth and nail.

  34. Melissa McKenna says

    GMOs are dangerous and that’s been proven time and time again. It shouldn’t be about money, it should be about eating real foods. We all have a right to know what know what we are eating.

  35. Tate Allyn Peterson says

    I support labeling truth for all products. The least that can be done is to label our food and much of it is exempt from this law from what I know. I will still be voting for it even if it ends up costing me more for my food.

  36. says

    I support truth & honesty – we have the right to know what’s going into our bodies.
    And beyond that, I support this Earth – we’re part of a much more complex system. What goes into us, goes into the planet.
    I support GMO labeling. (Or banishment!)

  37. Tandy says

    I happen to believe that it is a RIGHT, to know and be able to choose what I will or will not eat. Label GMO’S.. Then work toward a ban!

  38. Melanie says

    I support prop 37 for our children and grandchildren to have clean, naturally grown food. Evil designs of men today are in it for the money and care nothing for our health. I have learned from websites like this and I have lost 44 pounds so far by eating healthy, fresh foods and portions. I am on the journey to cure my diabetes and high blood pressure. I used to take 90 units of insulin a day (and the doc wanted me on more), but now I am insulin free and my A1C is an entire point lower. I want to be healthy and want my family healthy. You can follow my journey here: http://www.youtube.com/user/PreparedHousehold?feature=mhee

  39. Maureen says

    I can’t donate right now, but I totally support knowing what I’m eating. If GMOs were on the label, I wouldn’ have to worry about my food so much. Eating organic is hard whenever you eat out.
    If Europe can do it, why can’t we?!?

  40. Marthalynn says

    I absolutely support labeling of GMO’s!! I really hope it passes in CA so that other states will soon adopt it as well. While it is helpful that the Non-GMO project labels many items that are non-GMO, labeling GMO would reach much more consumers. So many people are unaware of what they are eating.

  41. Jessi Vandagriff says

    I have been posting YES on Prop 37 posts on my facebook account for weeks. If my friends weren’t aware of the issue before, they are now! Knowledge is power.

  42. Aimee says

    I would not purchase a car without knowing what kind of hidden safety features it had. That’s a rare purchase–I buy food every week and it affects my life far more than the car I drive–yet I’m able to know more about the inner workings of my car than the corn on my plate. If there’s nothing lurking in GMOs that should be worrisome, why the secrecy?

  43. Wendy Tico says

    I signed the petition to get Prop 37 on the ballet and will be voting YES. We all have a right to know what’s in our food.

  44. junecutie says

    I am firmly in support of labeling GMO foods. I have IBS, and I have found that I have a major sensitivity to GMO soy, which most soy in the US is today. But when I find products manufactured with non-GMO soy (UK products for example); I have no problems. Please enter me in the contests. Thank you very much for all that you do on our behalf.

  45. Tiffany says

    I truly support labeling GMO’s and I have been active on facebook reading posts, liking posts and forwarding the information on. I just want to know what I am eating – what is so wrong with that!

  46. says

    GMO labeling in essential. We have a right to know what the makeup of our food is. The fact that the big companies are throwing millions and millions of dollars to fight against what should be a simple addition to add to labels just shows that they have a lot to hide from the people they are supposed to be selling “safe” food to. If foods known to be genetically-modified aren’t already labeled as non-GMO, I won’t buy them because I won’t risk feeding genetically-modified foods to my family; the health risk is too great a cost.

  47. Kevin says

    One way we can influence this issue, is by paying close attention to which food suppliers are the real deal and actually do support Prop 37 (as opposed to always serving up good marketing lip service) and then reward/support them by choosing their products over those of their less than genuine competitors.

  48. Nicole W. says

    I definitely support GMO labeling. It’s been very interesting to see which companies have been fighting against it. It’s easier to support those that support GMO labeling :)

  49. StacyR says

    We have the right to know what is in our foods. Labeling GMO’S will help to start giving the truth back to us!

  50. Amanda says

    Sending my support for Prop 37 from Massachusetts–hope to see it pass in CA and set a good example for the rest of the country :)

  51. Heidi says

    I believe it’s our right to know the ingredients in our food, and thus believe that the labeling of GMO foods should be mandatory.

  52. Devin Lyttle says

    Wish I could contribute, but our corrupt government is too busy subsidizing Big Ag and raiding small organic farms, rather than focusing our tax dollars on stimulating the economy through a sustainable/renewable/ecologically sound means. Either way, I’m encouraged to see such a strong outpouring of support for taking back our food supply—one label at a time!

  53. Tara McGinnis says

    I support the labeling of GMO items. Without this labeling, we as purchasers cannot feel safe voting with our buck if we are not sure of what we are eating. Plus, the average American is still ignorant of this issue and labeling would make it more aware of the choices they are making.

  54. Lesa says

    I am not able to donate, however, one has to question why they are fighting so hard against it. If they really are “harmless for human consumption” then… why not let us know that’s what it is? It’s ridiculous that this is even a debate at this point. No one would consider having foods with unlabeled sodium content, or without a list of ingredients, why should “all natural” foods be different? Just my two cents.

  55. claire says

    GMO labeling is important to our health. We need to know what we’re consuming and to be able
    to make that choice for ourselves.

  56. Kristen says

    Labeling GMOs is a no brained to me. I am saddened that this is getting such opposition. And such financial opposition. Sheesh!

  57. Lori says

    If CA passes this, all the other states may follow. With the recent research finding of the effects of GMO corn, I have been more careful in my purchases…but it is limiting! So, I cheer on the labeling.

  58. Gavin says

    I completely support the labeling of GMOs. I think that we should have a choice whether or not we consume unnatural plants whose DNA has basically been mutated by humans. Never before in history have we had to consume anything like GMOs. And the health effects haven’t even been tested.

  59. Ceejay says

    I live in California and so would immediately benefit from being able to avoid GMOs, which none of us should be consuming.

  60. Kristie says

    I think it is so important to label gmo ingredients. Many people I care about have no idea of the damage done to their health by consuming gmo’s! Labeling would definitely help to educate others.

    • Yaya says

      I have been boycotting the companies that are against Prop 37 and supporting those that have made financial contributions to the cause. We can all help even if we can’t make a big donation.

  61. Emily says

    I support Prop 37 because EVERYone has the right to know what is in their food. We can’t all afford to buy organic, but we all deserve to know what exactly we are eating. Monsanto has overstepped its bounds and has tampered with nature without first studying the effects of its creations. We shouldn’t have to pay for their mistakes. The health of humankind is at stake here. Prop 37 is big step in reversing the frightening trend we are taking in allowing corporations to mess with our food behind our backs.

  62. Tracey says

    Thank you so much for using your blog to campaign against gmos! It’s so important to get proper labeling not only for today but for the generations to come!

  63. Amy P. says

    I did not donate as my husband just got a job after not having a full time one since February. But I support labeling 100%.

  64. Sarah H says

    I would rather know what is in my food, thank you. I’m don’t think GMOs are good for us, or that the businesses that develop them (cough Monsanto cough) are honest about their impacts on the environment and our long-term health.

  65. Melissa C. says

    I tried to follow the link to donate to the cause, but I could not get through. I’m planning on donating $10 if I can get to the page next time. In the meantime I want to show my support for the labeling of GMOs. We have a right to know what our food is made of so that we can make informed choices for ourselves and our families. All we want is information…is that too much to ask???

  66. Kathryn says

    I support the labeling of GMO’s because everyone deserved the right to know what they are purchasing and consuming especially when it comes to potentially harmful products.

  67. Jamie says

    The food companies must be really scared. Are they afraid that the magnitude of how many products contain GMO’s will open people’s eyes to what is going on with our food? I hope so, but I’m afraid that even if this bill gets passed most people won’t care.

  68. Monique M. says

    Every human being has a right to know what they are putting into their bodies.
    I feel like these companies are treating us like petulant children daring to interfere in the “affairs grown ups”. It’s OUR bodies, we have the right to know what we eat. Not everyone cares (we’ve all eaten hot dogs!) but in the end we have the right to know.

  69. Karibeth says

    My family is supporting Prop 37 because we know the importance of eating clean, whole foods. We live in CA, so this is extra important to us. If this proposition fails, it is unlikely that GMOs will be labeled in this country. This is such a scary thought. I have three kids that I am trying to teach to eat in a healthy manner. It’s hard to know what to tell them is ok to eat when they are out in the community with friends. I basically tell them to avoid all processed foods. Kids shouldn’t have to be afraid to eat breakfast cereal at a friends house. :(

  70. Olivia says

    I really hope prop 37 passes! There must be a lot of deception going on for companies like Silk who says their products are gmo free, to be fighting against the truth in labeling!

  71. Diane says

    I’m subscribed to your newsletter and liked on Facebook.
    I agree that labeling of GMO’s is necessary for people to make informed decisions on what they put in their bodies. I personally would choose not to put GMO’s in my body and I’m sure many other’s would choose the same.

  72. Tess Hanke says

    It is our right to know, It is time big companies quit controlling public policies and the truths be told! Vote yes for Prop 37

  73. Edward says

    I strive hard to eat real food and look for foods that are natural and do not contain GMO. I support efforts to label foods with GMO so consumers can make informed decisions.

  74. Rachel says

    I wholeheartedly support Prop 37. I’ve posted information about it for over a year on FB and mention it to others often. It’s very important and exciting!!!! I’m supporting by spreading the word (I’m a financially challenged single mom!).

  75. Nina says

    Frankly, I would prefer there be no GMOs but IF we have to have them then they better darn well be labeled! I avoid any foods that might have them…no corn for us at home anymore!

  76. Cathy Keough says

    Labelling GMOs is crucial to protecting our human right to CHOOSE whether we wish to consume them or not. The first step to being able to protect one’s own personal health is knowing the truth about the food we eat.

  77. Barb Howe says

    I am unable to donate right now but I fully support the labeling of GMO’s. It is critical to the health of our families and we are entitled to make the decision on what we eat…Just Label It!

  78. Cathy M says

    I didn’t donate this time but I have in the past and I continue to hand out their shopping guides to friends and family. I still kick myself for being duped by companies such as Kashi. GMO foods need to be labelled. It’s time.

  79. HollymMead says

    Why should the manufacturers fear labeling GMOs if there is nothing wrong with them? They resist b/c they KNOW that nobody actively wants them and they seek to hide the truth about their products from the consumers. IF a company stands by their product, let them proudly display the GMO (or NON-GMO) label and let’s see what gets left on the shelves by consumers!

  80. Darcy says

    GMO labelling is critical because genetic modification is the vehicle through which companies like Monsanto are taking control of the food chain, globally. By genetically patenting crops, they can prohibit farmers from collecting/saving seed and force them to become dependent on their seeds which are bred for resistance to chemical pesticides and dependence on heavy inputs of chemical fertilizers. This issue is about so much more than what we are putting into our bodies, as important as that issue is.

  81. kate says

    We should have the right to know what is in our food and where it has been grown…i support labeling GMO food sources and would like to see GMO go away!!

  82. NR says

    I’m cutting corners and scraping together a donation because this is so important! After all, you can’t buy health once you’ve lost it!

  83. Ttrockwood says

    I support gmo labeling because as a consumer we have a right to know the origin of our foods and as an american it should fall under freedom of information!!

  84. says

    I have been out of work 2 years with a multitude of medical issues. NO doctor has helped me. I saw the genetic roulette movie 3 weeks ago and it has changed the way I eat and shop! I totally support the labeling of Non GMO foods! I need to heal myself thru foods, and thank you so much for the work you are doing. I had no idea until a few weeks ago!

  85. Carla Ward says

    I am from Europe, but I have lived for a few years now, almost 16, and have 4 children. I understand that in Europe they have been able to fight GMO’s more efficiently than here.
    I am praying that this Proposition 37 will pass and that the results will start a revolution(hopefully a peaceful one) of awareness, and passion in people to voice their feelings about what they want to eat and feed their kids.
    People have to get involved. We have to share this with our acquaintances because, most of them don’t have a clue about this stuff.
    I support this Prop. 37 with all the passion in my heart. thanks Jenny and Nourished Kitchen for sharing this info, and your filosophy of going back to the basics and eating Real Food.
