A coalition of American food companies that oppose using glyphosate weed killer to dry out food crops prior to harvest plan to march on Washington DC to demand that the EPA take action. The food companies, including Stonyfield Organic, One Degree Organic Foods, Ben & Jerry’s, Grandy Oats Real Granolas, PCC Community Markets, Patagonia Provisions, Lundberg Family Farms, MegaFood, Mom’s Organic Market, and Clif Bar, will deliver a petition to the EPA that explains that the continued use of glyphosate as a pre-harvest drying agent is contaminating America’s food supply with a known cancer-causing chemical.

Mark your calendars for May 23. For this is the day that a coalition of environmentally-conscious, human health-focused, integrity-driven American food companies is planning to march on Washington, D.C., to demand that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) finally take action to stop the pre-harvest spraying of food crops with Monsanto’s toxic glyphosate herbicide.

Stonyfield Organic, One Degree Organic Foods, Ben & Jerry’s, Grandy Oats Real Granolas, PCC Community Markets, Patagonia Provisions, Lundberg Family Farms, MegaFood, and Mom’s Organic Market, and Clif Bar, along with many members of the public, will join one another in solidarity to hand-deliver a petition to the EPA explaining, among other things, that the continued use of glyphosate as a pre-harvest drying agent is massively contaminating America’s food supply with a known cancer-causing chemical.

As announced by Sustainable Pulse, the petition also highlights how the EPA’s outdated stance that glyphosate is “safe” flies in the face of more up-to-date findings by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), a division of the World Health Organization (WHO), that glyphosate is a probable human carcinogen.

On May 23 at Freedom Plaza, located just around the corner from EPA headquarters, these food companies and their allies in the fight for health freedom will hold a rally with live music, speakers, and plenty of free samples before marching over to hand-deliver their petition, along with more than 80,000 public comments from members of the public who also support the demands made in the petition.
