Dear Friends,

Food Empowerment Project (F.E.P.) is where we are now because of supporters like you. You have donated your time, your money, and your voice! You believe in the core of our work and have allowed your heart and mind to be opened, even when it was uncomfortable.

Thank you for your strength and heart and for helping us grow. We have so much more we want to do.

I would like to invite you to celebrate with us at our first “official” party!

If you have not already, please register for our 8-year anniversary vegan barbecue.

The celebration will be on Saturday, May 2, from 2 pm – 5 pm in Ross, CA (north of San Francisco), and will feature delicious vegan fare, live music, and a silent auction.

In order to attend, you will need to get tickets in advance, which are (sliding scale) $25-100 for adults. Kids under 18 can come with you for free.
