I can’t tell you how honored and proud I am to feature this giveaway on my blog. Not only is labeling genetically modified foods (GMOs) the most critical issue facing facing the environment and the organic food movement today, but I also just love Alvarado St. Bakery.
I’ve been eating Alvarado Street Bakery Sprouted Bread for 25 years. OK, ahem, yes I know that dates me.
I was just out of high school, working as a nanny in San Francisco. Someone made me the most delicious avocado-cheese-tomato-sprouts sandwich on Alvarado Street Sprouted Bread. It was the first time I had ever tasted sprouted bread.
I fell in love… and I’ve been eating it ever since.
We buy a loaf of Alvarado Street Bakery every week.
Sprouted bread is much better for you than regular storebought bread. It’s made from whole grains, and it’s sprouted. And Alvarado St. Bakery Bread is organic.
Yes on Prop 37 Giveaway: Alvarado St. Bakery Sprouted Bread – $285 Value
For over three decades, Alvarado St. Bakery has been a leader in the organic farming movement. They’re the oldest and largest cooperatively owned certified organic bakery. And did I mention they are solar-powered? Yeah, how cool is that?
Right now, organic is under attack in this country. Our only hope for getting genetically modified (GMO) foods labeled is happening RIGHT NOW in California. Next month, California voters are getting the chance to vote to label GMOs. The initiative is called Proposition 37.
Unfortunately, but not surprisingly, the opposition (Monsanto, Dupont, et al) have raised over $20 million to try to sway Californians to vote no on Prop 37.
We need to raise money to tell the truth about the dangers of GMOs — on TV commercials, billboards, etc. — and get Californians out on November 6th to VOTE YES on PROP 37.
