October is Non-GMO Month!

More than 14,000 grocery stores across the U.S. and Canada take part in our annual Non‐GMO Month, a 31-day celebration to educate the public and spotlight Non-GMO Project Verified choices on shelves. This month-long event provides a platform for citizens like you to stand up for non-GMO (non-genetically modified organism) choices in the food we eat and feed our families.

Find a participating grocery store near you.

In addition to providing you with clear labeling, educational materials, and savings on Verified products, these stores will also be providing non-GMO educational opportunities and special events. Support the efforts of these retailers by shopping at their locations and thanking them for being part of Non-GMO Month!

Getting involved is easy!

Enter the Non-GMO Month Daily Giveaway Contest. Enter the Non-GMO Month Daily Giveaway every day in October for your chance to win great Non-GMO Project Verified prizes from participating brands.

Educate yourself, your friends, and your family. Download educational Non-GMO Project resources to print and share. To stay current on GMO issues, check out the Non-GMO Project’s Facebook page and participate in the conversation on Twitter.

Choose Non-GMO Project Verified products. Look for the Non-GMO Project Verified seal on products and use our online shopping guide and mobile app to locate Verified products. Swap out one GMO-risk product with a Verified one or make every breakfast totally non-GMO. Or perhaps you’ll decide to eat non-GMO for the entire month. Choosing Non-GMO Project Verified products has a positive impact on the entire food supply chain. If we stop eating GMOs, producers will stop using them in our food.

Host or attend an event. Consider hosting a Non-GMO Month event in your town or check out your local store’s events. One powerful but easy idea: host a film screening in your living room. Invite friends over to watch GMO OMGSeed: The Untold StoryGenetic Roulette, or The Future of Food and serve Non-GMO Project Verified snacks.

Show your support! Pick up Non-GMO Project t-shirts, hats, stickers, and buttons at our online store. Every purchase supports our mission and brings us one step closer to a non-GMO future.

Happy Halloween! The final day of Non-GMO Month is a favorite holiday for many. Help finish off the 31-day celebration by handing out non-GMO snacks to trick-or-treaters. Learn more here!
