E05: Union of Concerned Scientist Report, Fish Farming, and Campbell’s GMO

The Union of Concerned Scientists issued a report this week called Fixing Food: Fresh Solutions from Five U.S. Cities, highlighting the innovative efforts of five cities, including Oakland, to address problems created by our broken food system. A coalition of environmental and consumer groups oppose the new ruling expanding industrial fish farming in the Gulf of Mexico. And ICYMI, Campbell’s soup is the first major food company to voluntarily adopt GMO labeling.
