  • Summary: Going vegan doesn’t mean ditching your favorite comfort foods – and that goes for the Filipinx community, as well. Food Empowerment Project (F.E.P.) launched veganfilipinofood.com with more than a dozen recipes that celebrate the traditional food of the Southeast Asian islands now known as “The Philippines.” The site brings a rich cultural tradition to vegans, the vegan-curious, and Filipinx who don’t want to let go of their heritage while adopting an animal-free diet.

shame on albertsons

Lo Que Puede Hacer

Por favor firme y comparta nuestra petición al CEO de Safeway/Albertsons, Vivek Sankaran ahora y déjele saber que los vecindarios necesitan acceso a comida saludable.

Firme la petición a Albertsons de nuestros compañeros de Birchwood Food Desert Fighters, pidiendo la eliminación de la clausula de no-competencia que afecta al centro commercial de Park Manor.

Llame a Safeway y deje un mensaje (Oprima 1 para dejar un mensaje en español):
1-877-Safeway
(1-877-723-3929). *

Llame a Albertsons y deje un mensaje (Oprima 1 para dejar un mensaje en español):
1-877-848-6483.*

Call Safeway to complain:
1-877-Safeway
(1-877-723-3929). *

Call Albertsons to complain:
1-877-848-6483.*

* Lenguaje sugerido y detalles: Por favor haga una llamada amable y tenga en cuenta que la persona con la que está hablando probablemente no sabe sobre este problema – la mayoría de las personas no lo saben. Safeway le preguntará por su nombre, su número de teléfono y si tiene una tarjeta de Safeway.

Mensaje sugerido: Estoy llamando para dejar un comentario en contra de la política de Safeway/Albertsons que a veces coloca restricciones en los títulos de sus propiedades previas y previene a otros supermercados de operar allí, en ocasiones por más de 10 años. Esto ha impactado la salud de la comunidad. Me gustaría que Safeway/Albertons termine esta práctica inmediatamente.

Si le hacen preguntas que no puede responder simplemente puede dar nuestro email info@foodispower.org y les puede recordar que está llamando porque está en desacuerdo con esta práctica.

Ordene panfletos para compartir con otros enviando un email a info(at)foodispower.org.
