Non-profit Fundraises for Monthly Veg Starter Kit

The Food Empowerment Project is raising money to publish Food Chain, a 12-installment guide to help people transition to veganism.

Non-profit organization Food Empowerment Project is creating a vegan resource to help individuals new to the plant-based diet make the switch to a cruelty-free lifestyle. Each month, program participants will receive a new Food Chain publication that includes information on the animal welfare, environmental, and labor issues of the agriculture industry as well as animal rescue stories, recipes, and online resources. Each Food Chain issue is researched, written, and edited by vegan health and culinary professionals and organizations, including Isa Chandra Moskowitz (Veganomicon author), doctor Michael Greger, United Poultry Concerns, and Vine Sanctuary. FEP is looking to raise $5,000 for printing and distribution costs. Donors who give $30 will receive an FEP postcard and a Twitter and Facebook shout-out, and donors who give $100 will receive a postcard, a shout-out, a listing on the organization’s website, and a subscription to the Food Chain newsletter.
