1. School Supplies for Farm Worker Families

A huge thank you to all of our compassionate and generous supporters in the Bay Area for their school supply donations for the children of farm workers.
We collected 40 backpacks, more than 300 pens, 600 pencils, as well as dozens of packets of paper, highlighters, construction paper, spirals, notebooks, and
more.

Thanks to your generosity, a lot of kids who would otherwise do without will be starting school with the supplies they need!


2. VegFest Colorado


Join F.E.P. founder and Executive Director lauren Ornelas on July 6th and 7th at this year’s VegFest Colorado where she’ll speak about the work of Food Empowerment Project and the need for a more just and compassionate food system. In addition to catching her session, attendees can also enjoy expert chefs demonstrating healthful vegan dishes, food sampling, free movies, kid’s activities, and more!

3. Do You Eat Babies?


In her most recent post at Appetite for Justice, lauren reflects on her experiences investigating chicken farms in Georgia and California, making it clear that “Chickens slaughtered for food are chicks, really. They are less than two months old when they are killed. These absolutely gentle and fragile birds are mere babies.” While most people never step foot inside the sheds where these chicks suffer, lauren gives you an inside account.

4. In Case You Missed It

Ecology Resistance Conference (link removed, no longer active)
Catch up with Food Empowerment Project this weekend at the first-annual Resistance Ecology Conference at Portland State University in Portland, Oregon. This
conference is a cooperative effort between the Student Animal Liberation Coalition (PSU), Oregon Jericho Movement and a new movement organization: Resistance Ecology. The conference advocates for a social justice movement that is multi-layered and unified, where progressive activists representing diverse efforts can come together to learn and share.

Last Chance to Get Fashionable for Food Empowerment
Vegan owned and operated, Compassion Company makes cool t-shirts that you won’t find anywhere else, and there’s only a few days left for you to pick up some new duds and send five percent of your purchase directly to F.E.P. The nice folks at Compassion Company chose Food Empowerment Project to be their featured organization because, in their words, “F.E.P. truly gets to the core of the vegan ethic in ways that are often overlooked yet are extremely important.” So pick up a shirt for you or a loved one and support F.E.P. during these last few days!
