Review for Food Empowerment Project, San Jose, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The work that the Food Empowerment Project does is amazing. Focused on food justice issues, they provide invaluable resources and are an amazing voice on a number of issues such as animals used in the food industry, the treatment of agricultural workers, human slavery and the environment. This is a visionary organization and I'm not aware of any other organization who takes a comprehensive view of the myriad issues surrounding food.

The organization focuses on linking all of the issues around food, including animals, the environment, farm workers, health and more. This is the only organization I know that takes a holistic view of the impact of our food choices.

I've been to a number of events and conferences where lauren Ornelas has given talks about F.E.P.'s work, and the feedback is overwhelmingly positive. People who learn about F.E.P.'s mission are inspired and empowered, knowing how much positive change they can create in the world and in themselves simply with their food choices. F.E.P.'s mission and message are quite powerful in creating changes that positively impact animals, the environment and people, including farm workers and low-income communities

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

F.E.P. is currently an all-volunteer organization with limited resources. I would love for this organization to receive additional funding so that it can continue to broaden its reach and further create positive change.
