The founder of Food Empowerment Project, lauren Ornelas, talks to Harriet about the human impact of our food choices and her journey into activism.
lauren believes we need to look beyond veganism, highlighting the exploitation of farm workers, including children, for products we all enjoy on a regular basis.
She gives advice on how to make more empowered food choices that consider animals, the environment and humans.
lauren has been an animal rights advocate for most of her life, previously launching and heading up the USA branch of the vegan campaigning charity Viva! where she conducted numerous factory farm investigations.
