NC-based GMO campaign holds kickoff

North Carolina's Food & Water Watch will hold a kickoff for a campaign to push for labeling of genetically engineered foods on Jan. 24 at the Harvest Moon Grille in the Dunhill Hotel uptown.

The campaign, Let Me Decide, will push for labeling on food products. The meeting is designed to be an overview of the issue and plans for the campaign, and a sign-up for people who want to be involved.

The meeting is 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the Harvest Moon, 235 N. Tryon St. Light snacks and refreshments (presumably GE- and GMO-free) will be served. It's free and open to the public, but the organizers hope you'll RSVP so they get a head count.

Go to to sign up. Parking will be validated from 6:30-8 p.m. if you park at the hotel.

If you can't attend, there also is an online petition. You can find that here.
