Food 4 Farmers VCM 2016
EVENT DATE: May 29, 2016
Food 4 Farmers teams running in the Vermont City Marathon 2016.
Our mission is to facilitate the implementation of sustainable food security programs in coffee-growing communities.
We help coffee-farming families, cooperatives, and community-based organizations identify challenges, resources, and strategies to build long-term solutions to hunger. We accomplish this by working with Latin American coffee-growing organizations to coach and connect them with the expertise they need to implement strategies, and the tools to monitor their progress over time.
We partner with coffee-growing communities to identify community-appropriate strategies, such as beekeeping. Beekeeping is a complementary activity to coffee farming, and provides another source of income and nutrition for the coffee families.
