Democracy is a beautiful thing, even though we see our president as having the ultimate say we can still turn his head the way that we want it to go. Our votes matter more than the person in power. It is your chance to stop talking about things you stand for and actually act upon those words!
It is hard to keep up with everything that is on the ballot and to understand it all is more difficult that it seems. We are passionate about California’s Proposition 37 (if you couldn’t tell :)). Rudi’s Gluten-Free Bakery prides itself on not only having delicious gluten free bread but also ensuring all the ingredients to be free of GMOs (genetically modified organisms) . Now, Prop 37 will not rid our foods of GMOs, it will simply label them. Easy as that. We are asking for food distributors to be required to label every food that has a GMO. Awareness is the first step to prevention, and saying yes to Prop 37 is the first step to awareness. We have the right to know what is in our foods and what we are putting in our bodies. These labels are not just for processed foods on the shelves, but the produce that we assume is safe. Most foods have GMOs in them now, even that apple that you have for lunch. The only way to know what you are eating is to read the labels- require the label because you have the right to know.
Use the power of your ballot, because without your vote this will not pass. Say yes to Prop 37, you have the right to know.
