About Us

We partner with coffee-farming communities in Latin America to cultivate a food-secure future.   

We help strengthen the capacity of coffee cooperatives and communities to improve food security using strategies that promote diversified livelihoods, and we educate and inform partner communities to take action against seasonal food insecurity.   We build capacity by helping community-based organizations develop the right tools and expertise to achieve long-term success for food security programs.

We target coffee cooperatives and community-based organizations as our partners, 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.
