A few of us from safe Food Alliance, Chennai did have this outreach program at the Besant Nagar beach as slated, yesterday.
We went around the beach with copies of petition, distributing leaflets about Safe Food, notice carrying list of organic outlets in Chennai with a write up of why should one go organic - and collecting signatures endorsing our petition from all out there.
The public in general were very receptive. many in fact thanked us for doing this. there were may youth who said they were happy we were doing it for them and they will spread the word around..
In a matter of 2 hours we got close to 450-500 signatures..and we also urged many to give missed calls..
The SFA volunteers were very happy but I would think we can get more signatures by targeting corporates (esp IT firms) and colleges.
