My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Food Empowerment Project, Cotati, CA, USA
I have done some graphic design work as well as some writing for the Food Empowerment Project and found the experience to be great. One of the groups strengths, in the capacity that I worked with them, was the clarity with which my duties were assigned. In the writing project I knew who the audience was, what the voice should be, exact word count, and so forth. This helped me immensely and saved the group lots of time as I didn't have to rewrite or restructure what I had done after turning in a first draft. My experience with the design work I did was very similar in that what was expected of me and what was expected of the design I did were very clear. It was also nice to work with a group who understand the value of graphic design and polished writing as tools to being taken more seriously. I found the Food Empowerment Project to be very professional in this regard, and I find this is lacking in a lot of groups trying to make a difference.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
that I learned a lot about food justice issues I've been able to share with others. We also help distribute literature from the Food Empowerment Project in our own company.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
fund them better and built up more staff so the work could move forward faster.
