New American Jewish World Service fair trade project with Equal Exchange

Equal Exchange announced the formation of a new fairly traded coffee and chocolate partnership with American Jewish World Service (AJWS). AJWS is an international development organisation dedicated to alleviating poverty, hunger and disease among the people of the developing world, motivated by Judaism’s imperative to pursue justice.

AJWS invites all Jewish brotherhoods, sisterhoods, youth groups, or religious schools to serve Equal Exchange fairly traded coffee and chocolate at Oneg Shabbats, brunches, and events or to use them for fundraising. When synagogues or Jewish organizations order fairly traded products through the AJWS Project, a portion of every pound of coffee or chocolate purchased will go to support AJWS’s Fighting Hunger from the Ground Up campaign.
