The Food Empowerment Project - Know What You Eat Blog Series

The Food Empowerment Project seeks to create a more just and sustainable world by recognizing the power of one's food choices". They believe that everyone no matter what type of income or ethnicity should have access to healthy fresh and frozen fruits and vegetables. They are spending their time helping lower income communities have access to healthier foods. In lower income areas grocery stores don't carry organic produce sections at all. No wonder lower income communities have such high rates of obesity and diabetes. It's because they do not have access to anything that is healthy for them. They only have access to processed food when they go to the grocery store. Lower income communities have more access to liquor stores than they do to fresh fruits and vegetables. Read more about these issues here.
The Food Empowerment Project is composed of activists from various animal right, environmental and social justice organizations. These are all issues that I am personally passionate about which is why I support the Food Empowerment Project.
