On Sept. 24, 2015, Foundation Social Eatery is supporting Kula Project and we invite you to help! Twenty percent of the sales from that day will benefit the organization’s #ForTheFarmer campaign, which goes toward helping families in East Africa build a self-sustaining lifestyle that is profitable for them and the community.
Through Kula Project funds, families in East Africa are able to purchase quality coffee seeds that will yield the best product. Additionally, Kula Project ensures that each farmer is able to sell their product to a fair trade buyer. The best part is that by investing in a coffee farmer, you are “twice as likely to help eliminate poverty than if you were to donate in a different sector.”
On the Kula Project website, it mentions that $6 purchases a coffee tree that will support a family for 30 years. With that income, families are able to buy additional food, pay school fees and cover health fees as necessary. That means by eating at FSE on Sept. 24, you will not only get a delicious meal, but you will be making a BIG difference!
In honor of the Kula Project, chef Mel is planning to serve a special menu item featuring coffee on Sept. 24. To go ahead and reserve your table, click here. We look forward to changing lives with your help!
