Update: Valle Inca Covid-19 Donation Program

Through the Peru donation campaign we ran for the month of May, we were able to raise enough funds to help Valle Inca leader Prudencio distribute baskets with staple goods including rice, sugar, and cooking oil, as well as basic cleaning supplies like alcohol and soap, to all 127 Valle Inca member families.

The total dollar amount we raised seems tiny at $1,140, which works out to about $9 per member family. This is a great illustration of how a little can go a long way in a time of crisis. We’re grateful to be able to support Valle Inca in any way through this period and look forward to continuing to maximize our purchasing power however we can. 

Almost universally, producers we work with say the best way to support them is to continue to buy their coffee at Red Fox prices. As much as we can, the crucial work during this time is to maintain a similar level of commitment to these groups as in past years. If you’re ever interested in finding ways to help, get in touch.
