The 411 Live Genetically Modified Foods Awareness Event
October 24, 2014, 6:00pm - October 24, 2014, 8:00pm
6801 N. Yates Road, Milwaukee, WI
The 411 Live will host a free public education event on genetically modified foods on October 24th from 6:00-8:00pm at Cardinal Stritch University, 6801 N. Yates Road, Milwaukee, WI in the Walter Schroeder Auditorium.
The event will feature the debut of a compelling 30 minute film on the prevalence of genetically modified foods, the possible health risks associated with their consumption, transparency in food labeling and alternative food choices.
Following the video presentation there will be a panel discussion on the issues presented. Panelists include Dr. Susan Riegg, a certified Non-GMO Speaker, Dave Swanson, Chef/Owner of Braise Restaurant and Culinary School, Anne Temple, Non-GMO Activist, Michael R. Gutschenritter, Co-Owner of Three Brothers Farm and David Engel, Executive Director of Nature’s International Certification Services.
Because most consumers are unaware of the wide spread introduction of GMO food into the grocery market, it is hoped that greater public awareness will result in calls to action for clear identification and labeling and removal of GMO food from public consumption.
The 411 Live Genetically Modified Foods public education event takes place in observance of Non-GMO Awareness Month during the month of October.
The event is sponsored by Neo Soul Productions, IKP and Braise Restaurant and Culinary School.
