We are delighted to announce the start of our 2019 School Supply Drive for the children of farm workers.

Farm worker rights is one of the four main focuses of our vegan food justice work. Our advocacy includes activism to change the laws and policies that allow the injustices farm workers face on a daily basis. While we fight the policy fights, we also want to show up for farm workers and their families so they are not alone in trying to meet their basic needs.

This is an expression of gratitude and solidarity, not charity.

What you can do:

Ship school supplies: Ship supplies directly to the F.E.P. office from now through Friday, July 19th.

Volunteer to pack backpacks: Packing for the school supply drive will occur Saturday, July 13th, and Saturday, July 20th in our Petaluma, CA, office. Contact us if you’d like to sign up to volunteer.

Keep up with F.E.P. Supplies List to see how many items we still need to ensure children of farm workers get a great start to their school year.

* 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.
