Fair Trade fortnight at MAC

IMG_4075

To participate in the national Fair Trade Fortnight, Petrina and Team Green organised a Fair trade morning tea. We baked muffins, brownies, slices and truffles with a majority of fair trade ingredients then sold them in the staff room for a gold coin. And we offered fair trade coffee and chocolate.

We raised $130.10 by doing our bake sale – very generous donations!  The money has now been transferred to Oxfam, who have already gathered $27,354 in donations from similar events around NZ during May.  Some of that $ will get into the hands of the farmers who truly deserve it.  Teachers tasted the difference of fairly traded foods and commented: “a great cause and simple…anddddd delectable!!! 🙂

We intend to switch the instant coffee and chocolate made available to teachers in the staff room to fair trade.
