Acaia will also match $50 in donations for this period.

In their own words:

Food 4 Farmers believe that every family should have enough nutritious food every day. That’s why we partner with coffee farmers, their families, and coffee co-ops and other farmer organizations to build thriving local food hubs, diversify family income, and promote sustainable farming practices that strengthen biodiversity and ecosystem resiliency throughout Latin America.

Our Core Values

  • Share to Scale We advocate for all farming families and communities. We aim to scale by sharing what we learn and the tools we develop with other communities and organizations.
  • Learning Organization Our programs evolve as we partner with communities to co-design, implement, evaluate, and refine our work. We are committed to asking good questions and working with our partners to grow from our shared experience.
  • Compulsive About Collaboration No single person or organization can solve the complex problems faced by coffee-farming communities. That’s why we work with local partners who understand the challenges rural farming families face. We connect communities with the resources they need to follow their own path to success.
  • Champions for Local Solutions We work FOR our community partners and their success. Our programs and strategies originate in the communities themselves and can be sustained locally over time.

Our programs have an impact far beyond food security. Less imported food aid and products means less transport, lower energy use, and positive climate change impact. We believe all communities can benefit from stronger local food systems that result in a more stable supply of healthy food and reduce less dependence on volatile markets. The coffee cooperatives and community-based organizations we work with are effective partners that have the capacity to organize and educate farmers and families to take action.
