Food is power. That’s the idea behind the California-based group Food Empowerment Project, which encourage a vegan lifestyle for ethical, health, environmental, and social justice reasons. Each year, FEP holds a food festival in Vallejo, California to encourage and promote access to healthy and ethical food choices in places where they don’t normally exist.

Located northeast of San Francisco, Vallejo is a rich, diverse and open-minded community, and each year FEP’s vegan food festival attracts a wide array of community members, vegan chefs, local healthy food leaders, and others who work in this field who are there to share their knowledge and passion for this critical work.

We were thrilled to get the opportunity to capture this event, tell FEP’s story and provide them with a useful tool as they continue to grow their plant-based and vegan outreach and refine their messaging.
