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.

Fight for the Oceans Day

Our Fight for the Ocean clean-up on August 30 and subsequent weekend (in honor of Dr. Sylvia Earle’s birthday) went incredibly well! We had vegans and non-vegans alike out cleaning beaches, lakes, and rivers! This is just part of our attempt to help connect veganism and conservationism, reminding advocates of both that there is always more we can and should do to protect our oceans!


One Glass At A Time

Food Empowerment Project’s (F.E.P.)  launched phase one of our latest effort to raise awareness about how animals are raised and killed for food: Help End Animal Cruelty One Glass at a Time.

Every month, we will stand beside the cows and hand out leaflets to commuters. We will help them understand the cruelty of the dairy system, and we will be a regular presence to provide a counter to the strong pro-dairy presence in the area.
