13 Days of Halloween: The Dark Side of Chocolate (Chocolate Tasting & Coffee Break)

Monday, October 20, 2014, 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., Fuller Campus Center atrium, Leicester
Monday, October 27, 2014,11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Hawk’s Nest, Worcester

Many people love the taste of chocolate, but do you know where that chocolate comes from or how it was produced? Unfortunately much of the international cocoa industry features unsafe working conditions, child and slave labor, and unfair prices paid to those who harvest these products. Stop by the Fuller Campus Center atrium or the Hawk’s Nest to pick up some Fair Trade chocolate, coffee and information about Fair Trade so that you are more informed this Halloween!

Fair Trade: What is Fair Trade?

Fair Trade is a global model that honors the producers (farmers/artisans, etc), community, environment and consumers in a fair and just exchange system. It is a system of trade and production based on a fair cost of production (as set by the International Fair Trade organization), labor wages, safe working conditions, and respect for the environment (through sustainable practices).

Be more informed, be the change!
