The Non GMO Project is sponsoring National Non-GMO Month in October. Observed since 2010, the program seeks to increase education and awareness about the growing presence of unlabeled genetically modified (GM/GMO) food products and ingredients.

People and organizations across North America are discovering the risks GMOs pose to our health, families and environment. Non-GMO Month provides a powerful opportunity to coordinate voices and actions around the country as brands, retailers and individuals stand up for the right to know what’s in our food and to choose to avoid GMOs. Protecting consumer choice and a non-GMO food supply requires a multifaceted approach with online and boots-on-theground teamwork.


The Non GMO Project invites everyone to help create local events and spread the word in communities. Begin at NonGMOMonth.org.
