Happy Holidays friends!

If you missed our first annual GATHER event, we've published a recap with photos from the event. Among the announcements at the event, we were excited to share that we have a new partnership with Green Umbrella member La Terza, who is offering locally roasted, direct trade coffee to support our work. Learn more about about the partnership and the fifth-generation, woman-owned farm in Honduras.

Need a mug for that coffee?

Donate $40 or more to support our work and we'll send you a Food Policy Council durable metal mug. Two mugs and a bag of coffee would make a great gift for a loved one!
