Fair Trade Breakfast<br /> May 13-14th, 2011
We can change the world by changing our breakfast. It’s as easy as a cup of coffee and a banana. In honor of World Fair Trade Day, join supporters around the world in a Fair Trade Breakfast to help raise awareness about the importance of social, economic and environmental sustainability in global supply chains. Every purchase matters, and every action that you take in support of Fair Trade make a big difference in the lives of farmers and farm workers throughout the world.

A Fair Trade house party is a great way to get your friends and family involved in a warm and intimate setting. The house party model has been an effective organizing tool for decades and is perfect for sharing the stories of Fair Trade communities and the tastes of Fair Trade products. A house party doesn’t have to be in a house, and it doesn’t even have to be a traditional party – anything goes!
Students have always been at the forefront of the Fair Trade movement. Whether it’s advocating on campus to convert their dining services or educating their peers through classroom discussions, the fair trade community on college campuses is vital to the success of our movement. Large institutional accounts drive enormous volumes of sales for Fair Trade companies and in turn the farmers that grow the food we enjoy every day.
Communities of faith were among the first supporters of Fair Trade in the U.S., and their involvement continues to grow. Today, Fair Trade is a concrete and powerful way for people of faith to take their values to the marketplace and make a real difference in the lives of farming families around the world. Thousands of congregations across the country are serving and promoting Fair Trade Certified(TM) products.
