COTATI, Calif., 11/16 — As an important followup to their website http://www.veganfilipinofood.com, Food Empowerment Project’s latest recipe booklet—Vegan Filipino Food—features nearly 20 delicious plant-based recipes, from “chicken” adobo to turon!

Vegan Filipino Food, both the website and booklet, was inspired by two Pinay members of Food Empowerment Project (F.E.P.) in an effort to share the familiar flavors of their homeland while also inspiring their kababayans (fellow Filipino/a/x) to expand their circle of compassion and justice to include non-human animals.

Erika Galera, F.E.P.'s communications and marketing manager, and a very proud Pinay, recalls growing up with Filipinx meals that relied heavily on meat. As a vegan, she wanted to maintain her connection to her culture and cuisine without added helpings of animal suffering.

“Vegan Filipino Food was created as a way to represent my people and show that we can still eat the foods we grew up with and those familiar tastes without animal suffering. I’m so proud to share our new recipe booklet that features contributions from our Filipinx community, beautiful illustrations, and colorful photos that I hope will inspire justice and compassion for animals, the Earth and people!” she says.


Now, vegans and non-vegans alike can learn to prepare easy, tantalizing recipes such as lumpia, sisig, pancit, pinakbet, and cassava cake with F.E.P.’s perfectly-sized recipe booklet!

The Vegan Filipino Food booklet is available in English, with Tagalog coming soon! To order your copy, visit F.E.P.’s online shop at https://bit.ly/FEPstore.

About Food Empowerment Project
Food Empowerment Project (http://www.foodispower.org), founded in 2007, seeks to create a more just and sustainable world by recognizing the power of one’s food choices. In all of its work, Food Empowerment Project seeks specifically to empower those with the fewest resources. Its advocacy areas include fair conditions for farm workers; the availability of healthy foods in Black, Brown, and Indigenous communities; and the protection of animals. A vegan food justice organization, Food Empowerment Project also works to expose negligent corporations, such as those that push unhealthy foods into low-income areas, those that perpetuate food deserts (or food apartheid areas), and those that sell chocolate derived from the worst forms of child labor. Food Empowerment Project is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit.
