Lutheran World Relief has partnered with a new vendor for their coffee project and will now be partnering with Thrive Farmers. For more information, you can visit LWR’s website at www.lwrfarmersmarket.org. In the past, LWR received approximately 20 cents per pound of coffee sold. In partnering with Thrive, they will now be receiving four times that at 80 cents per pound of coffee sold. Additionally, the coffee sold is coming directly from the farmers who benefit from LWR. You may have previously had Thrive Farmers coffee and not known it as it is served in Chick-Fil-A restaurants.
The cost per bag will be approximately $8 but the new bags are 12 oz rather than the previously sold 10 oz. bags. Additionally, coffee for percolators is only available in 5 lb bags. Before placing a wholesale order, the Global Missions team would like to know of the congregation’s interest. If you are interested, please write your name on the sheet posted on the Coffee Sales Table in the Fellowship Hall and specify what roast and what type of grind you would like to purchase. Thank you for continued support of Global Missions through the Coffee Project.
