The Freedom Food Project seeks to increase awareness and action around access to healthy affordable plant-based foods. We work to create a thriving local food system in low-income communities of color by empowering the people through programs and workshops that encourage healthy food choices that reflect a more holistic society. Our goal is to not only bring to light the unavailability of healthy foods in low-income areas, but it's also to reverse the unjust food system. We believe healthy food is a human right.
Freedom Food Project is a plant-based food justice organization and a registered non-profit 501(c)(3) and was founded in 2017 by Paige Butler in Los Angeles, California.
What Is Food Justice?
Food Justice is communities exercising their right to grow, sell, and eat healthy food. Healthy food is fresh, nutritious, affordable, culturally-appropriate, and grown locally with care for the wellbeing of the land, workers, and animals. People practicing food justice leads to a strong local food system, self-reliant communities, and a healthy environment.
What We Do
With our organization’s mission always in mind, we strive to find new strategies for improving the health of those living in low-income communities. Our Store Tours program does just that. Families are taken on guided grocery store tours with certified plant-based nutritionists that teach families how to shop plant-based on a budget as well how to navigate there local Ralphs, Kroger and Food4Less grocery store in order to make healthier more compassionate food choices for them and their families.
