FOOD EMPOWERMENT PROJECT
August 21, 2012

The Food Empowerment Project is a fantastic organization that tackles all the injustices surrounding our food choices. As a vegan organization there is the much needed focus on animals but there is also equal concern for issues such as human slavery, environmental exploitation, the plight of farm workers, food security, environmental racism, and food deserts. FEP recognizes that these issues do not exist in a vacuum; instead, they are part of the same cycle of oppression and we need to be concerned about them all if we care about creating a more just world.
Consistent with their holistic approach to food justice, FEP is working to help new vegans stay on track by advocating going vegan for a variety of ethical reasons in their Food Chain newsletters. Instead of promoting an only-for-the-animals approach, Food Chain covers the environmental, social justice, and health reasons for going and staying vegan. This no-stone-left-unturned approach is not only more inclusive but also leaves fewer opportunities for people to make excuses or claim they don't care.
I am extremely proud to be part of the Food Empowerment Project. Volunteering for them has raised my awareness not only of how much injustice is out there but also of how far reaching an impact our food choices have on the world. It truly is empowering!
