Proceeds from this event support the programs of Slow Food NYC, including Urban Harvest, an educational program in 16 New York City schools and at a summer urban farm in Brooklyn. Each year, more than 1,000 kids learn how good, clean, and fair food is important to their health and well-being, the health of their families and communities, and the health of the planet.
As we work to support the rights of farmers and eaters, we strive to seek a balance. As the GMO debate continues, we invite producers, as a condition of participation in this Slow Food NYC event, to sign this statement:
"I support the rights of eaters and drinkers to know what is in the food and beverages they enjoy. I do not knowingly use GMO ingredients in the products that I am offering. If I do know, or have good reason to know, that I am using GMO ingredients in any part of my production, I agree to so represent my products to eaters and drinkers attending the Slow Food NYC event in which I am participating."
