     Fair Trade organic coffee, olive oil, tea and jams, chocolate bars (many different flavors), mango cashew bars, raisins, and baking cocoa are available for purchase each Sunday after worship in the east entryway along with the Serrv catalog for those who wish to order gift items for the holidays. Lutheran World Relief Fair Trade PrIMG_6956oject is a partnership between Lutheran World Relief and Equal Exchange. Equal Exchange offers other items such as organic nuts, fruits, chocolates and more. Please stop by and shop to help support organic fair trade and the farmers and families who provide these products. Thank you for thinking of others.
    
     We have been selling Fair Trade food items such as coffee, tea, and chocolate for about three years now. We recently starte serving fair trade organic blend coffees during ourIMG_6954 fellowship time. We order the coffee from Equal Exchange and they partner with small scale farmer co-ops from countries like Nicaragua, Mexico, Uganda, Haiti and the Philippines. Lutheran World Relief has joined with Equal Exchange to help those small scale farmers develop and grow, so they can eventualy generate more income and move out of poverty. It’s a win, win proposition. The environment is preserved, the growers and producers receive a fair price to insure their future, and YOU drink some of the best coffee on the planet. Trinity has made a commitment to serve our global community and fair trade is just one way we can do that.
