Food Empowerment Project seeks to create a more just and sustainable world by recognizing the power of one’s food choices. We encourage choices that reflect a more compassionate society by spotlighting the abuse of animals on farms, the depletion of natural resources, unfair working conditions for produce workers, the unavailability of healthy foods in communities of color and low-income areas, and the importance of not purchasing chocolate that comes from the worst forms of child labor.
Lack of access to healthy foods in communities of color and low-income communities is a huge part of our work at F.E.P. On June 26th, we’re hosting a community event in Vallejo, CA, to coincide with the release of our report highlighting the injustice of food inequality in that community.
Food Empowerment Project was invited to Vallejo to take a critical look at access to healthy foods. F.E.P. gathered information over the past couple of years and is getting ready to release the findings in Vallejo: City of Opportunity Lacks Access to Healthy Food.

One goal of Food Empowerment Project is to highlight the inequity of the food system in the United States, which has led to higher rates of health problems among people of color and in low-income communities due to the lack of access to healthy foods.
Food Empowerment Project’s blog not only addresses the various issues we work on — the treatment of animals, workers, and the environment, as well as environmental justice issues — but also includes information about our current efforts and how people can get involved.
