Season’s greetings from Food Empowerment Project! 

Whew! This has definitely been the biggest year yet for Food Empowerment Project, and our success is due in large part to wonderful supporters like you. With your help – and the assistance of many hard-working volunteers – we’ve been able to accomplish some wonderful things in 2010, including:

The launch of our new website
The launch of our blog – Appetite for Justice
The release of our first report on access to healthy foods in communities of color and low-income communities in Santa Clara County

In addition, both our Facebook page and Twitter account have grown dramatically, and we have used these networks to announce new website sections and blogs. Thanks to our volunteers Kat & Mark for keeping these going.

In case you have missed them, these are the newest website sections:

Grow your own food
Exporting factory farms
Lactose intolerance

A huge “thank you” to our volunteer Kiel for his work on our website!

We also have spread our message of food justice for animals, workers, and impacted communities to high school and university students, to attendees at conferences around the country, and directly to the communities themselves. As part of this outreach, Food Empowerment Project was able to bring vegan alternatives to those who had never tried them!

In the coming year, we want to increase our work in the community as well as take on a certain company that seems to enjoy having a less-than-transparent chocolate supply chain.

We want to do more! But we truly need your financial support. 

Even though we don’t have much overhead, we still need your help. Even a donation of $20 pays to host both of our websites— and—for a month! So a donation of $240 covers our web hosting costs for both websites for the entire year!

From the bottom of my heart, I thank you all for believing in the work we do, spreading the word and having the desire for justice to speak out about these issues and Food Empowerment Project.

In solidarity,
