Coffee challenge passes goal

Expect full coffee pots in Lutheran homes and churches: The goal to buy fairly traded coffee set by the "Pour Justice to the Brim: the 90-Ton Challenge" was surpassed at 99 tons by Oct. 1 (August 2004, page 10).

Started Sept. 30, 2003, the challenge was a project of Lutheran World Relief; Equal Exchange, a U.S. worker-owned fair-trade organization; and Women of the ELCA and its magazine Lutheran Woman Today. The effort called attention to the fair-trade process that helps coffee farmers provide food, shelter, health care and education for their families.
