Vani Hari, known as the Food Babe, was pleased to be a Democratic delegate with one aim in mind: She was hoping to encourage the President to keep his campaign promise made in 2007 to label genetically modified food.
For some of us who write about food, it’s sickening to see what is happening to the food supply and the complete lack of concern by most members of Congress and the President.
Food Nation Radio Network had the opportunity to interview Vani about her experience at the Democratic National Convention and how the “all accepting” tide turned on her when she decided to try and make a difference in front of the convention with television viewers watching throughout the world.
