Petaluma, CA – Farm workers who pick our food are victims of an unjust system that benefits corporations over workers, often leaving parents and grandparents unable to afford school supplies for their children or grandchildren.

Food Empowerment Project is pleased to announce its 2019 School Supply Drive, benefiting the children of farm workers and assisting families trying to meet their basic needs.

The drive runs from now until July 10. We will distribute school supplies this summer to children of farm workers in the Watsonville/Salinas, Sonoma County, and the Central Valley.

Food Empowerment Project seeks to create a more just and sustainable world by recognizing the power of one’s food choices. We encourage healthy food choices that reflect a more compassionate society by spotlighting the abuse of animals on farms, the depletion of natural resources, unfair working conditions for produce workers, and the unavailability of healthy foods in low-income areas.
