We apologize for the delay in the following announcement...there has been a
lot to stay caught up on this week :)

Transition Reno is showing the "Future of Food" FREE this Wednesday, Feb.
24th at 7 pm, and Thursday, Feb. 25th at 2 pm, both showing at the TMCC
Sierra Building room # 108.  Audiences are invited to ask local food expert
panelists questions after the showings.  *

The Future of Food*, a groundbreaking documentary released in 2004, distills
the complex technology and key regulatory, legal, ethical, environmental and
consumer issues surrounding the troubling changes happening in the food
system today—genetically engineered foods, patenting, and the
corporatization of food—into terms the average person can easily understand.
It empowers consumers to understand the consequences of their food choices
on our future.  Learn more about the film HERE<http://www.thefutureoffood.com/>

Our letter-writing and telephone advocacy has is off to a strong start --
make sure you do your part to stand up for organics in Nevada!

Thanks to co-op member-worker Kyle Edgerton, there is now an online petition
in support of the NV Dept. of Ag. Organics Program. In just a few seconds
you can send a message to several Nevada state officials. Check out the
petition at http://food.change.org/actions/view/dont_de-fund_nevada_organics

Be sure to share it with Nevadans and other food activists by email,
Facebook, Twitter, or whatever other social media you use. There's an
ambitious goal of 5,000 signatures, so we need everyone to step up!
