Redeemer offers Fair Trade Products For Sale
In 2004, members of the Social Ministry Committee realized the importance of making Fair Trade products available to Redeemer's members and folks from the community. After educating folks to the importance of this justice issue, the church council decided that only Fair Trade coffee, tea and cocoa would be served at all church functions and that members Harold and Norma Good could sponsor and finance the project.
Fair Trade organizations, Equal Exchange, Farmers Market Coffee and Divine Chocolate are the organizations that support.
We help small scale farmers in Latin America, Africa, Asia and the United States. They earn fair prices for their products, have access to affordable credit, protect the environment and gain a long term trading partner they can trust. With your support, communities can now invest in education, health care and agricultural improvements. In addition, for each pound of coffee purchased a contribution is made to the Lutheran World Relief "Small Farmer Fund" for projects supporting small farmers and their families.
