Eat someone out of poverty —–how could you do that?
The Market Harborough Fair Trade Town group are giving folk in the Market Harborough area a challenge. Can we sell 90 one kilogram bags of fair Trade rice grown in Malawi in the next 7 weeks? If so then
one Malawian rice farmer can afford to send one of his or her children to secondary school for one year
—-and education is the key to getting out of poverty.
Bags of white and brown rice will be on sale from 14th September until the end of October from
-a stall outside Sainsburys Supermarket (inside if wet) on Saturday, 14th September
-participating schools and churches
-the Oxfam shop on the High Street (during trading hours)
-a stall at the Farmer’s Market in the market square on Wednesday, October 3rd
