What:​Davenport, IA:  Food and Water Watch is spearheading a day of action in Davenport calling on Senator Joe Seng to support the labeling of genetically engineered foods in Iowa.  Genetically engineered foods have not been fully tested for their impacts on human health and the environment, and local activists are demanding the labeling of these foods so consumers can make informed choices.

Who:​​  Brandy Eklof, Local Business Owner; LeeAnn Felder, Davenport Organizer, Food and Water Watch; and Dr. Curtis Rexroth, Chiropractor

Where:​​  Fresh Deli Restaurant, 421 West River Drive, Davenport

When:​​  Tuesday, October 2nd, 11:30 AM

Why:​This is the first action in the Quad-Cities for Food and Water Watch’s “Let Me Decide” campaign.  This campaign is focused on passing genetically engineered (GE) food-labeling bill in Iowa.  The issue of labeling genetically engineered food is sweeping the country, and we are organizing to move the issue forward in Iowa.
