Fair Trade Fair
Just some of the items available
Come to 2017's Fair Trade Fair!
People's Food Co-op will be hosting the Fair Trade Fair as part of Global Initiatives Week on Sunday, November 5 from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. There will be fair trade vendors, specials on fair trade items, generous food & beverage samples in the community room, and live music.
Global Partners will be selling unique items (such as bags, scarves, jewelry, spices, and much more) made by individuals from our partner communities in Ethiopia, Nicaragua, and the Pine Ridge Reservation. These items make great gifts for the holidays, and 40-70% of the proceeds go back to the local artisan, with the remaining proceeds supporting future Global Partners initiatives.
Sunday, November 5, 10 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. People's Food Co-op - La Crosse

The Global Partners annual dinner is an opportunity to connect with volunteers, learn about current initiatives, celebrate program accomplishments, and learn from our partners during an inspiring keynote talk.
Thank you to everyone who joined us this past September to celebrate the local partnerships we have right here in La Crosse. We are looking forward to seeing you again at the 10th annual Building Bridges Celebration in September 2018!
