Rating: 5 stars  

Food Empowerment Project motivates and empowers me to make just food decisions. As a Board Member, I am honored to be able to work and support such a multifaceted and holistic organization.

Food Empowerment Project really is one-of-a-kind! No one else connects the dots the way F.E.P. does. Finally, there's a group for those of us who care about everyone impacted by the food system - animals, produce workers, children forced into slavery in the chocolate industry, and low-income communities of color who cannot access healthy foods. I feel so good about donating to F.E.P.!

Great one-of-a-kind organization! No one else is doing the extremely important work that F.E.P. is tackling.

I first came across the Food Empowerment Project when I was researching on ethical chocolate. I immediately fell in love with the organization and it's mission. Finally an organization that recognizes how entangled food, health, the animals, the environment, and the workers are. We cannot fix our broken food system by tackling single issues and the Food Empowerment Project understands this.

I appreciate how much impact the Food Empowerment Project has made as a volunteer organization. Without hesitation I decided that I needed to help out where I could. This started with donating to the organization and now volunteering with them. Lauren, the founder, is incredibly intelligent as well as kind and compassionate. I continually learn from her and enjoy volunteering with the Food Empowerment Project.

I love being a part of the Food Empowerment Project volunteer family! F.E.P. makes the critical connections between ethical and compassionate choices that transcend all species. The sooner our greater community understands the intersections between our daily decisions and the impact on tomorrow's outlook the better. Their mission resonates with me entirely; allowing me to continue learning and sharing information about worker's rights, food source implications, and improving access to healthy foods for all communities.

When I came across Food Empowerment Project through tabling next to them at the Animal Rights Conference it was the first time I had been actually excited about a non-profit organization in many years. Finally a group that truly gets it. Not only are they dedicated to promoting the vegan message but they do not ignore so many of the other important issues that intersect when one is dealing with food politics. To have a truly effective anti-oppression movement we must do our best to address all issues of oppression, not casting aside those that don't strictly fit in with our chosen issue. FEP does this beautifully, tying together the intersectionality of oppression in a way that is easy to understand and much more accessible to a greater portion of the population than most other organizations.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Greatly increase their funding to allow them to increase their team members and work full time on their mission.

The Food Empowerment Project taught me about the injustice that is going on not only in other countries but right in front of our door steps every single day. I was shocked when I first found out about this and I'm very grateful to have found this fantastic organization of dedicated people who work very hard to spread the word! I learned so much while volunteering for this organization, for example how your food choices affect others and the environment one meal at a time. I'm so happy for being a part of this amazing team!

As a former board member of Food Empowerment Project (F.E.P.), I can honestly say that this all-volunteer, vegan organization is making connections and doing work that is more than commendable. From bringing awareness to the public about the plight of today's farm workers to the lack of access to healthy food in "food deserts," F.E.P. continues to educate others about the importance of their food choices, including the ease of reducing the suffering of animals raised for food. F.E.P. truly empowers people to do the most good and the least harm, which is something I continue to aspire to do and why I happily support them.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

love to see a paid staff member so that F.E.P.'s vision could reach even more people.

I absolutely am grateful to and fully support Food Empowerment Project. FEP has helped show thousands upon thousands about how food choices affect diverse populations and the environment. They promote access to healthy foods, support company transparency, and have effected serious change in the marketplace through consumer advocacy and other tools. I am so proud to support them and am glad their work will continue to impact our world for the better.
