1. Bring back Wonka bars!

Please Nestlé, bring back these Wonka bars! They tasted so good! I even liked both the movies (Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, 1971 and Charlie & the Chocolate Factory, 2005) that have this type of bar.

These bars tasted so good that it bring back memories of everyone, including me!

2. Bring Trader Joe's to Logan Square

This petition is put in place to ask that Trader Joe's open a location in Logan Square where residents of the community can access fresh and organic foods.

Logan Square does not have many places to get groceries from, let alone to get fresh and organic foods at reasonable prices without travel- which is not an option for some.

By signing this petition, you can help residents gain access to fresh and organic foods right in their neighborhood.

3. Stop EU Plant Variety Agency

The European Commission is changing the European Union’s plant legislation, apparently to enhance food safety across the continent.

This move has sparked a heavy opposition from many, saying that the measure will threaten seed diversity and favour large agrochemical businesses. This new law creates new powers to classify and regulate all plant life anywhere in Europe. -The “Plant Reproductive Material Law” regulates all plants. It contains restrictions on vegetables and woodland trees, as well as all other plants of any species. It will be illegal to grow, reproduce, or trade any vegetable seed or tree that has not been been tested and approved by the government, more specifically the “EU Plant Variety Agency.”

This agency will be responsible for making a list of approved plants and an annual fee must also be forwarded to the agency if growers would like to keep what they grow on the list - See more at: http://goo.gl/FG6oLz

4. Support GMO Free Labels

Genetically modified foods have been around for millennium. However, the foods that have been created in the last 20 or so years (franken foods) mix the genes of different species. There is a movement on to force companies to label their foods that contain GMO's.

They are fighting back like hell and they will never give in. I propose that the FDA create a GMO FREE label ( I chose the color green) of uniform color and shape that companies whose products contain no GMO's could put on their products. WE DON'T NEED THE COOPERATION OF THE BAD GUYS! WE CAN REWARD THE GOOD GUYS!

People will look for that green label and buy those products left and right. We can leave the GMO containing food producers in the dust by coming from the other direction.

5. Morrisons please give us better customer service

I came at this from my experience of a company whose customer service has no customer focus at all levels from store to the head of customer service. Their focus is the company not what the customer experiences.

This was reinforced by researching the legions of people on Facebook with similar experiences therefore a petition to press for better customer focused service.

So please support.

Thanks.

6. Chipotle Needs Half Servings for $4.00 on Bowls

Chipotle, despite being Organic, Quick, and a Good Value, needs to have a Portion Control Meal Size. The Carbs and Calories of its Current Menu is too high and no good for those looking for a Dietary Solution in the Fast Food arena.

A slightly over half portion at $4.00 would be reasonable for both Company and Consumers alike. Chipotle still makes a Profit, and Consumers stay Healthy and coming back.

9. Bring Tables Back Into Pinecrest Bakery!

Pinecrest Bakery was founded in the heart of the Village of Pinecrest in December 2012. Since opening, we have brought a long-desired niche market of Cuban-Latin food that is native to many of the people in this community.

Due to antiquated city regulation, the Village of Pinecrest has been unable to grant the bakery permission for in-store seating.

10. Stop airing COOL WHIP Frosting Mistreated Cakes Commercial

Kraft Foods Inc., Comcast Inc, The Food Network have collaboratively decided to waive public outcry and press on in the production and the subsequent airing of the worst and most offensive food commercial in human and film history.

This petition's point in question is not the visuals. The actor's voiceover and subsequent music score are the culprits in this filmic crime of inhumanity. The actor's script suggests that the unprofessional looking cakes are depictions that should mentally correlate with images of child abuse, domestic violence, misogamy, and animal cruelty. A world of hate had been impressed in less than one minute.

12. Re-introduce tariffs to protect Riverina citrus and ban Brazilian concentrate imports

Riverina Citrus is in crisis. Fruit rots on the ground as the market is flooded by cheap Brazilian concentrates. Not only are these concentrates processed using poisonous products they have destroyed our local market because of their cheap price and over availability.

We would like to see tariffs re-introduced to protect Riverina citrus and the banning of the use of Brazilian concentrates to help have our industry from ruin.

13. GUT WRENCHING! Tell FDA to Remove Toxin (Carrageenan) from Food

Rates of digestive diseases are rising—ranging from widespread digestive discomfort (“belly bloat,” “spastic colon,” Irritable Bowel Syndrome) to serious and sometimes life-threatening diseases such as ulcerative colitis and colon cancer.

For decades, scientists conducting laboratory animal experiments using the common food additive carrageenan have found higher rates of gastrointestinal inflammation, colitis-like disease, and even colon cancer.

Carrageenan is a convenient and unique food additive for the food industry, and selling carrageenan is a profitable enterprise for a handful of chemical corporations. For decades, these companies have spread misinformation—often, outright lies—about carrageenan’s safety.

Carrageenan can be found in many foods, even foods labeled “natural” and “organic.” It is widely used in dairy products (chocolate milk, whipping cream, ice cream, nonfat sour cream), frozen dinners, dairy alternatives (soy milk, coconut milk, almond milk), prepared poultry and cold cuts, nutritional drinks, and even infant formula.

And who has been more than willing to listen to the corporate scientists rather than to the scientists funded by the National Institutes of Health? That’s right: the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). In June 2012, the FDA rejected a citizen petition by the nation’s preeminent publicly funded scientist and carrageenan expert, who formally requested that carrageenan be removed from our food supply.

Sign the petition below, and let the FDA know that it’s time to act in the interest of our health and safety. Carrageenan is a dangerous food additive, and should be removed from the list of allowed additives!

The FDA’s shameless catering to corporate interests has to end.

15. Feed the Children

Some countries have a program to feed children in schools, others do not. If we think that human resources are the more important, then start feeding children using help from bankers which earn very big profits from credit card users.

A small fee will be helpful to start the program.

16. Applebee's should rehire Chelsea Welch

An Applebee's waitress who posted a receipt with a note from a pastor complaining about the automatic gratuity added to the bill on the Internet was fired on Wednesday after the pastor complained to her manager.

Chelsea Welch, the waitress, wrote in an email to Yahoo News that the pastor (who has since been identified as Alois Bell) told Welch's manager at the St. Louis-area Applebee's that the ensuing firestorm had "ruined" her reputation.

"I give God 10%," Bell wrote on the receipt, scratching out the automatic tip and scribbling in an emphatic "0" where the additional tip would be. "Why do you get 18?" (There were more than eight people in Bell's party, triggering the auto-tip.)

19. Compass: offer alternatives

On Friday 21 September, a month ago, our canteen at the Utas Tasmania School of Art was closed without warning by Compass, the company that manages all commercial services for Utas.

They didn't offer any alternate sources for food and drink, relying instead on students paying for overpriced pies and seafood at fish punts for a month.

The staff at the Tasmania School of Art have made their voice heard that it's not acceptable, now it's time for students to do the same.

22. Help the USDA

Most people eat meat such as pork, chicken, turkey, cow, etc... We also have dairy produce that comes from cows and chickens. But while we're enjoying these foods and drinks, animals in slaughterhouses are being tortured.

Animals are intelligent creatures and don't deserve this torture. The slaughterhouses are also filthy and the meat isn't always healthy. A lot of people die every year from food poisoning.

24. Tell Monsanto: Endorse California's Proposition 37, Require GMO food labeling

We request that the Monsanto Company publicly endorse California’s PROPOSITION 37 - the November, 2012 ballot initiative to require labeling of genetically modified foods sold in California.

We believe:

… People have a right to know what ingredients are in their food.

… Millions of people are concerned about genetically engineered food for reasons related to environment, health, and/or social issues, and want genetically engineered food to be labeled. As a matter of integrity their concerns should be respected.

… Current regulations in California and the U.S. do not require labeling of genetically engineered food.

… California’s Proposition 37 would require that genetically engineered food sold at retail in California be labeled.

… 970,000 signatures were gathered in California to place Prop 37 on the ballot. Many more consumers in California, the U.S. and the world want to be told if their food contains genetically modified ingredients.

… Monsanto pledges on its website to demonstrate integrity, respect, ethical behavior, perspective and honesty in everything its employees, contractors and management do.

… Monsanto also pledges to provide extensive educational programs, and to “ensure that information is available, accessible, and understandable.”

… In the U.S. Monsanto continues to oppose the labeling of genetically engineered foods, even though it would indicate they contain Monsanto’s own products.

… In European countries Monsanto has publicly stated that food labeling has Monsanto’s full backing and that Monsanto fully supported food manufacturers and retailers in their introduction of labels on genetically engineered food in Europe.

… Monsanto currently complies with labeling regulations in the European Union.

27. Help stop Animal Slaughter houses

Animals are fully conscious when they are slaughtered; the majority of the time they are not given pain killers to help.

The animals that are kept in cages, sometimes not even as big as their body, are living in fear, pain and suffer.

Do we really want our dinner to be an animal that has suffered for us?

If we speak out, we can make a difference, we can help.

29. Address food insecurity & poverty in Nunavut so we can feed our families

Over 70% of Nunavut families with children between the ages of 3-5 are food insecure. Poverty, climate change and high food prices mean that many families in Nunavut go hungry.

The UN Rapporteur recently issued a report about Canada's 800,000 families who are food insecure, calling food insecurity in our country a "great concern". The Conservative MP for Nunavut, Leona Aglukkaq, shamed Nunavummiut with her immature and out-of-touch response to the UN Rapporteur.

We, the people of Nunavut, deserve better from our federal government. Please sign this petition to ask for concrete, effective change that will address poverty and food insecurity in our communities.
