Sit down for breakfast, stand up for farmers!
As Martin Luther King famously said, ‘before you finish eating breakfast in the morning, you’ve depended on more than half the world’. Despite our dependence on farmers and workers for the foods, drinks and products that we love, about 795 million people are undernourished globally.
It’s a scandal that the people who grow the food we take for granted can’t always feed their own families. We can support farmers and workers by having a Fairtrade breakfast.
When people are paid a fairer price, they can have more control over their lives when times are hard. Whether it’s the extra cash in their pockets or being able to expand their farms to grow more food to eat, Fairtrade means many farmers and workers are able to put enough food on the table for the people they care about, all year round.

Our Prayer Breakfast on 13th March, will be Fairtrade. All welcome. Please let Morag know if you plan to come so we can buy enough food.
