1. Food Empowerment Project’s New Website!

Food Empowerment Project is excited about our new website: www.veganmexicanfood.com.

As many of us already know, Mexican foods are some of the easiest to make vegan, and as the holidays are upon us, we wanted to use this opportunity to share some of the traditional Mexican foods that we grew up with: tamales, churros and more! Here you will find homemade-style recipes that are reminiscent of mom’s kitchen.

If you have some delicious vegan Mexican food recipes to share, please send them over as we’d love to include them. Send them to: info@www.foodispower.org. More recipes and more information will be added soon.

Also, don’t forget to spread the word about the site and get cookin’!


2. The Story of Stuff

Dealing with consumption of another kind, this video reminds us about the importance of living simply. “The Story of Stuff is a 20-minute, fast-paced, fact-filled look at the underside of our production and consumption patterns. The Story of Stuff exposes the connections between a huge number of environmental and social issues, and calls us together to create a more sustainable and just world. It’ll teach you something, it’ll make you laugh, and it just may change the way you look at all the stuff in your life forever.”


3. 2008 is Around the Corner

Here at the Food Empowerment Project, we couldn’t be more excited about 2008! As many of you know, we are an all volunteer organization. Our website is still in its temporary phase, but we continue to be excited about the force we are trying to create!

We hope you like our new website: www.veganmexicanfood.com and will share it with others as well as www.foodispower.org.

Our mission to remind people that every food choice they make can have either a positive or negative impact on the animals, workers and the environment resonates with many of you, as does our goal of working to ensure that access to healthy foods is every person’s right and not a privilege.

In addition to finishing our administrative paperwork, our websites, and unveiling our logo, we do hope to have many more exciting projects to share with our members.

We love hearing from you and appreciate all that you do to share our work with others.

Happy Holidays and thank you for your continued support and belief in our mission!
