My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Food Empowerment Project, Cotati, CA, USA
I feel very fortunate to be part of the Food Empowerment Project. I volunteer with a number of organizations, but no one else is working on the intersectionality of so many social-justice issues, and they all relate to food: environmental racism, animal rights, slavery, the environment, and more. You’d think that tackling all this would be too much for a small non-profit, but no. This is a truly astounding group of volunteers, all of whom dedicate untold hours of their time toward encouraging healthy food choices and creating a more just and sustainable planet. I am so proud to be a part of this effort.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
I have seen the group's founder, lauren Ornelas, giving many talks, and she always inspires people. I love seeing the look on someone's face when they realize how their choices really do make a difference.

Donate more money to help them grow and become even more effective!
