Eat with Purpose  

1. Go vegan – If you have access to healthy foods and don’t want to hurt animals.

2. Shop with care – Try not to support corporations that violate human and animal rights.

3. Lend your voice to echo the needs of farm workers (corporate campaigns, legislation).

4. Choose organic – Strive to buy organic whenever possible to lessen toxins on farm workers.

5. Choose ethical chocolate – Use our chocolate list and app. Look for our Chavez tags.

6. Think outside the bottle – Avoid buying single-use plastic water bottles.

7. Bring your own – Use reusable bags, utensils, and containers when you shop and eat out.

8. Buy local – Support the farmers’ market in your community, especially Black and Brown farmers.

9. Support living wages to create more equity and help give everyone access to healthy foods.

10. Check out our website for information on bananas, coffee, palm oil, wine, and so much more.

11. Speak out about the issues of food injustice.

12. Speak up – Fill out comment cards, send email comments, or speak to store managers about carrying more ethical food options.

13. Get involved – Check out our website or contact us about our current efforts and how you can join us.

14. Sign up for our monthly e-newsletter, which highlights our campaigns and outreach.

15. Spread the word – Share what you learn with others! Share this site with a friend or family member.

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.
