Farm: Various smallholder members of ASMUCAFE, Women Producers
Variety: Castillo, Caturra, Colombia
Watauga county is the3rd poorestcounty in the state of North Carolina, which itself has the 15th highest poverty rate in the nation. Food insecurity and lack of access to lifesaving medicines are massive issues facing many of Watauga county's residents. Since 1982Hunger and Health Coalitionhas been fighting to provide access to food and medication through several programs including their Food Pantry, Fresh Product Market, Food Recovery Kitchen, Backpack Program, A Simple Gesture, and in-house Pharmacy. Detailed information on each of these programs can be found on H&H's website here.
In an effort to raise funds we have partnered with Hunger and Health Coalition to produce their very own coffee offering. After tasting different coffees and roast profiles with them we decided upon a just slightly more developed version of our Colombia Cauca by ASMUCAFE, producing a smooth, balanced cup full of brown sugar and caramel notes.
Hunger has no face. Seeking or needing help isn't a marker of one's character or worth. Throughout our partnership with Hunger and Health, we at Hatchet aim to use our platform and audience to highlight, give a voice to, and support the work and mission of Hunger and Health while striving towards destigmatizing hunger and assistance.
Located just down the road from Hatchet, Hunger and Health has and continues to provide much needed access to low-income, chronically ill, and economically vulnerable families and individuals. While the things we can all do to help H&H in their mission includes volunteer work, food donations, and helping connect those in need with the resources available, one of the most powerful ways to assist and support H&H is through monetary donations.
$6 from every bag sold will go directly to Hunger and Health Coalition. For every $1 H&H receives they can purchase $5 worth of food!
