For the last year, I’ve been working with Food Empowerment Project, helping with writing projects and hearing about the great work they are doing to promote a vegan food justice movement. Food Empowerment Project is an amazing organization and they are now asking for your help (and so am I) to launch their brand new monthly newsletter. Watch the video above with Food Empowerment Project founder and director, lauren Ornelas and read on for details. From the campaign site:
Designed to help new vegans, Food Chain is a lifestyle compass for navigating challenges and staying motivated. Too often individuals opt to go vegan, but without the necessary support or direction slip into old habits. Confronted by skeptical friends and family or simply longing for foods that were once a staple in their diet, new vegans can find perseverance in short supply.
Vegan organizations often provide a one-time information overload. Food Empowerment Project’s Food Chain publication is comprised of 12 monthly installations to provide support on a continuing basis. Food Chain provides new vegans with a monthly booster of information, ideas, and encouragement to keep them in the fold. Our goal is to make Food Chain freely available to individuals who are considering veganism, or who’ve recently jumped the tracks to a more healthful and compassionate way of life.
Food Empowerment Project believes that the choice to become (and stay) vegan is far easier if a person has the right information at the right time. As such, each issue of Food Chain builds on the previous one, offering insights into the raising and killing of animals for food, expert advice on staying healthy, delicious recipes, shopping tips, inspiring stories about rescued animals, and much more.
Food Chain will include contributions from:
– Isa Chandra Moskowitz, vegan chef and author of Veganomicon
– VINE Sanctuary
– for the Animals Sanctuary
– The Vegan Zombie
– Jack Norris, RD
– Michael Greger, MD
– United Poultry Concerns
– Animal Place
– Carol J. Adams and Patti Breitman
