World Fair Trade Day Pictures

The Bay Area Fair Trade Coalition set up a table (in collaboration with Oxfam) in Dolores Park this year on World Fair Trade Day to educate the public about Fair Trade!

Dolores Park Cafe supplied us with delicious coffee to serve to the public. Alter Eco, Barefoot Coffee Roasters, Equal Exchange, and Wholesome sweeteners donated a bunch of free Fair Trade food items that we gave away. We also passed out our Where To Buy Fair Trade in the Bay Area list to a ton of people. Woo Hoo!

Thanks to everyone who came out to support us on World Fair Trade Day!
