4. Food Empowerment Project in the Media
We were thrilled that Huffington Post again turned to lauren for her food justice expertise in their recent coverage of an app aimed towards helping consumers make ethical food choices. It’s fantastic that F.E.P. is recognized as a leader in this area!
And while we’re on the subject of apps facilitating ethical food choices, we want to give a shout out to Callie and Nichole of Vegan Warrior Princesses Attack! (VWPA), who were successful in getting Ben & Jerry’s to disclose the country of origin for their chocolate (sadly, we can’t recommend their vegan ice cream). Inspired by our work on corporate transparency, VWPA took up this important effort. Don’t have our vegan chocolate app yet? Download it here!
”I really do my best to empower women, especially
young women and women of color, to recognize their power.”
– lauren Ornelas, interviewed by Our Hen House.
In Our Hen House’s June 3rd podcast, lauren talks all things F.E.P., sharing why she went vegan and discussing important food justice issues, including the need to listen to community members’ voices regarding healthy food choices.
