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.
Have you wanted to go vegan but did not have the support to do so? Have you tried to go vegan but eventually went back to eating animals? Food Chain helps you to make that commitment to a more compassionate vegan lifestyle and sustain that lifestyle permanently!

Food Empowerment Project has been working to educate consumers about the worst forms of child labor, including slavery in the cacao industry, but some companies, like Clif Bar, refuse to disclose their sources.
While based in Santa Clara County, Food Empowerment Project decided to take a closer look in our own backyard to determine how easy it is for communities of color and low-income communities to have access to healthy fruits and vegetables, as well as alternatives to meat and dairy products.By using dozens of volunteers, we surveyed more than 200 locations around the county.
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.
