ORDER your farmers' box and support equal exchange
Equal Exchange, in partnership with the Palestinian
Agricultural Relief Committee (PARC), is running a crowd-sourced fundraising
campaign to support small farming operations in the West Bank. Together they
have created a product called the Palestinian Farmers' Box, containing
five food items including dates, almonds, couscous, freekeh, and za'atar
(spices). These foods are produced in spite of limited water, climate change,
droughts, and other countries straits imposed by the occupation.
Equal Exchange needs to meet a minimum order quantity to
cover the cost of export, so we are taking pre-order commitments in order to
make a pledge to Equal Exchange as a congregation. The Farmers' Boxes are
$50 each, but no payment is due until they meet their minimum. Boxes are
expected for delivery in summer 2018.
Pre-order commitment deadline is March 26. Please
contact Kellie Krondon at email@example.com
to pre-order your Farmers' Box.
