Food Justice Project

Through community education, political action, anti-oppressive organizing and community-building, the Food Justice Project seeks to challenge and transform the globalized, industrial, corporate-driven food system and promote existing alternatives. Meetings are 3rd Tuesday of the month, 6:30 – 8:30pm at Central Coop’s Rochdale Room. 1900 E. Madison St, Seattle. Contact for more info.

What we do

Educate for Action

Community-based workshops and “teach-outs” educating people on food justice & sovereignty issues and encouraging people to take action.

Solidarity Campaigns

Mobilizing our members and the public for a fair food system.
Take action to support these campaigns and food sovereignty everywhere!

We can always use more help if you’d like to be a part of our work! Email for ways to get involved or attend an upcoming meeting.

New to the Food Justice Project?

Volunteer orientations will be held from 6pm-6:30pm on the third Tuesday of each month, before Food Justice Project (FJP) meetings. Orientations are a great way to learn more about the Food Justice Project, our current campaigns, and ways you can contribute. The 6:30pm FJP meeting will build off this momentum, providing an opportunity to meet current members and get involved.  If you would like to attend an orientation please RSVP by contacting

You can add yourself to the FJP listserv and get meeting & event announcements, and a few food justice resources/articles (1-2 posts a week) by clicking here!
