Food 4 Farmers
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 don’t import a simplistic, one-size-fits-all model – we help communities identify locally appropriate solutions and strategies – and support them in managing their progress.
We target coffee co-ops and community-based organizations as the gateway to achieve food security, because they have the capacity to organize and educate farmers to take action against hunger.
We believe that empowering farming communities to increase production and consumption of local food has positive effects far beyond food security. With less food aid and production coming from overseas, there is less transport, energy use and impact on climate change. And, just as our communities here in the U.S. benefit from strengthening local food systems, so do coffee-growing communities.
Nonprofit organizations and governments have worked with communities for decades to develop strategies to overcome hunger —but because of lack of communication, financial resources, or organizational capacity, real and lasting food security is still out of reach for millions of coffee-farming communities.
Food 4 Farmers works to fill those gaps, to achieve sustainable food security for coffee-growing communities.
