FOOD EMPOWERMENT PROJECT
July 18, 2012

The main reason I choose to work with Food Empowerment Project is because of the direct impact their work has on people in my county. Rather than suggesting solutions to the injustices they experience, Food Empowerment Project works hand in hand with members of my community to identify thoughtful solutions to the struggles they endure. In my view, this is how truly effective, long lasting change occurs. FEP pursues the root of the problem with a tenacity I haven't seen in any other group, for-profit and non-profit alike. It starts with the unparalleled passion of the founder and grows with every single dedicated volunteer. FEP fills a critical niche in the social justice movement and demonstrates an uncompromising commitment to meaningful change. I feel privileged to work with such amazing people.

FOOD EMPOWERMENT PROJECT
August 8, 2011

The Food Empowerment Project is a truly unique organization that focuses on interrelated social justice issues that have historically been addressed individually. In my experience with FEP, people seem to connect very quickly with the issues and especially the approach. Most people want to be part of the solution and FEP inspires and empowers people to speak up, get involved and make meaningful changes in their lifestyle. FEP is all about education and action. They continue to demonstrate that they have the initiative to take on serious issues and the follow-through to drive change.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My experience with FEP has helped me to think even deeper about my food choices. It wasn't until my work with FEP that I gained a new perspective and appreciation for the struggles endured by farm workers. From both research and first-hand experience, I'm now able to share impactful stories with friends, family and others.

Ways to make it better...

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

Well, it really isn't a change but I'd love to see FEP find a way to work with children even more. The events they've done with children so far have been extremely well received.
