Dear Representative Metcalf,

I’m writing to thank you for signing on as a co-sponsor of H. R. # 3377, the Genetically Engineered Food Right to Know Act.

As the largest cooperative retailer of natural and organic foods in the United States, PCC Natural Markets thanks you for your leadership on this right to know issue. The right to know what’s in our food and the right to make an informed choice is something our 40,000 member households care about deeply.

On behalf of our members, your constituents, who live near and shop at our Kirkland store in Washington’s 2nd Congressional District, thank you.

Very best regards,

Jeff Voltz
Chief Executive Officer
