1. F.E.P. Celebrates Third Birthday!

We chose May Day as our birthday to highlight part of our mission: preventing injustices against workers. Workers are the backbone of this country, especially those who work in the fields to pick our food, and yet many get little in return. We hope to have sections up on our website soon with more information about how you can help.

We’d like to thank everyone who has supported our work and helped spread the word about us! We have heard from many of you and truly enjoy hearing about how you have changed your eating habits by making food choices that promote a more sustainable world.

Please remember that you can keep in touch with us more frequently by reading our blog, “Appetite for Justice”, and by following us on: Facebook or Twitter

2. Eating on a Budget

Unfortunately, many people think that eating a more compassionate diet (whether it be vegan, organic or fair trade) means spending more money. However, it is possible to eat a compassionate diet on a budget as there are foods we can cook and ways we can shop that can help lessen the negative impacts we have on the planet and our pocket books.

Check out our most recent addition to our website: https://foodispower.org/eating-on-a-budget/

3. Vegan Fideo

Some of us at F.E.P. have done without the delicious taste of fideo for decades as we were lacking a veganized recipe!

But look no further, here it is:

If you have never tried it, now is your chance! This easy, traditional recipe is something no one should do without!

Keep an eye out on our site, www.veganmexicanfood.com for tasty vegan Mexican food recipes as we often add more – but we do need your help!

Don’t forget to donate your veganized Mexican food recipes to us at info@www.foodispower.org

Oh, and if you want to donate money, feel free to do that too!

Call Albertsons to complain:

* Suggested language and details: Please make a polite phone call and keep in mind the person you are speaking to probably has no idea about this policy—most people don’t. You just need to stay on the line for a customer service representative. For Safeway, they will ask you for your full name and phone number and if you have a Safeway card number.
 
Suggested language: “I am calling to log a comment against a Safeway / Albertsons policy that sometimes puts restrictive deeds on its former properties and prevents other grocery stores from moving in, sometimes for 10 years or more. This has impacted community health. I would like Safeway / Albertsons to end this policy immediately.”
 

If they ask questions you cannot answer, feel free to provide our email: info@foodispower.org and remind them you are calling because you disagree with this practice.

Order some of our leaflets to share with others by emailing info(at)foodispower.org.

 
 

Join us by taking a stand in front of your local Safeway / Albertsons! Find a demo to attend here.

Want to organize your own demo? We can send you leaflets and posters. Contact us here for additional details.

 
 
Take action on social media with hashtag #ShameOnSafeway & #ShameOnAlbertsons and tagging Safeway & Albertsons.

Thank you for wanting to take a stand against a corporation that is impacting the health of Black and Brown communities and low-income neighborhoods.
