Mary’s Gone Crackers, maker of award-winning organic, vegan and gluten free foods, announced its support of California’s Proposition 37, with a $5,000 donation to the California Right to Know campaign fund. Officially titled the Right to Know Genetically Engineered Food Act, Proposition 37 will require foods containing genetically modified organisms (GMOs) to be labeled in California if passed.
“Our passion for providing consumers with nutritious, organic and non-GMO food, combined with the genuine belief that all Americans should have an educated shopping experience, naturally led us to support Prop 37 and all food-labeling legislation,” said Mary Waldner, founder and chairman of Mary’s Gone Crackers. “Voting ‘no’ on this measure would essentially deny consumers the right to know what they are feeding their families. Our support of Prop 37 and donation to the California Right to Know fund was an easy choice to make—a choice that embodies our company mantra of Conscious Eating.”
California Right to Know is the official organization and campaign headquarters for garnering support for Proposition 37 throughout California. Mary’s Gone Crackers joins a number of prominent food and beverage brands that announced donations, which are being used to help support the education of consumers about GMOs, the importance of food labeling, and to encourage citizens to vote “yes” on Nov. 6.
