VeganismThe goal of Food Empowerment Project (F.E.P.) is to raise awareness about how our food choices can change the world. By making informed, ethical food choices, we can make a difference and take a stand against abuses. F.E.P. encourages people to use their individual choices to eat with their ethics and use their collective voices to help bring about positive change. We strive to do this in our outreach as well as on our website.

One of the core values of F.E.P. is to lessen the suffering of all beings, and for those who have access to healthy foods, to encourage them to go vegan, which we define as not participating in the exploitation or causing the suffering of non-human animals.


Veganism

F.E.P. works to promote ethical veganism through education, through outreach, and also by providing tools to help people go vegan.

We have two sister sites that have a wide selection of free Mexican and Filipinx vegan recipes! Veganmexicanfood.com provides delicious recipes, not only for vegans of Mexican descent but for anyone who enjoys Mexican food, and it is available in English and Spanish. Veganfilipinofood.com provides yummy recipes, not only for Filipinx folks but for anyone who loves the sweet and savory foods that Filipinx recipes are full of. Veganfilipinofood.com is also available in both English and Tagalog!

Additionally, we have a Vegan Mexican Food booklet full of recipes and other information. It is also available in English and Spanish.

In 2018, we started our Fight for the Ocean effort (which we hope to grow into a full campaign) in order to do more for our oceans. By eating sea creatures, we are contributing to the destruction of the world of other beings, but we also need to do more. In honor of Dr. Sylvia Earle’s birthday, August 30, we began doing ocean clean-ups around the globe.

In the past, we held a monthly vigil outside of a chicken slaughterhouse in Petaluma, CA, and currently we have launched our One Glass at a Time campaign.

All events that F.E.P. hosts are vegan, and we have been successful in encouraging other justice groups we have worked with to serve vegan fare at joint events.

F.E.P. also coordinates events in the local community to focus on animals who are raised and killed for food.

* 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.
