Heart of the Rockies Christian Church in Fort Collins, CO

Equal Exchange

Heart of the Rockies members and friends put their faith into action by purchasing and using fairly traded coffee, tea, chocolate and snacks and by learning about how our consumer choices impact the global community. The Disciples of Christ Coffee Project, a partnership between the Disciples Home Missions, Week of Compassion and Equal Exchange, is a way for our congregation to join hands with small farming communities across the world. Through the Project, farmers receive fair prices for their crops, affordable credit and long-term trade relationships with a trading partner they can trust, Equal Exchange. In addition, for every pound of fairly traded products Disciples order through the Project, Equal Exchange makes a donation to the Disciples Hunger Relief and Food Security Fund.

Coordinators of Equal Exchange are Nathan Hall and Michael Whitley.
