Jerry Greenfield, the titular co-founder of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, stopped by the Issaquah Highlands Sept. 13 to share his support for labeling genetically modified foods.
Hosted by State Sen. Mark Mullet, who owns a Ben & Jerry’s franchise on 10th Avenue Northeast, Greenfield showed up to lead an event bringing attention to state Initiative 552, which would mandate food producers to label genetically modified foods if passed on the November ballot.
“We’ve been in the area for a week, scooping out free Ben & Jerry’s and having a grand time,” Greenfield said. “Ben & Jerry’s is courting yes on I-552.”
