We’re Running For Coffee!

Because achieving food security is a marathon, not a sprint

Celebrate our 6th anniversary participating in this event by sponsoring or supporting Food 4 Farmers relay teams!
Since 2011, we’ve partnered with coffee farmers and their communities in Latin America to overcome the “Thin Months” of seasonal hunger. Most high quality coffee we enjoy is grown by millions of smallholder coffee farmers. Coffee is also their main – or only – source of income. Yet, year after year, low coffee prices, high food prices, and climate change impacts prevent coffee farmers from earning enough to feed their families all year long.
Food 4 Farmers is working with coffee cooperatives in Colombia, Guatemala, Mexico, and Nicaragua — representing more than 8,000 families — to build long-term solutions to hunger. We coach and connect coffee farmers and cooperatives with the expertise they need to implement effective, sustainable strategies to grow healthy food and diversify income, while making sure they have the right resources to thrive independently.
