Fair Trade in Phoenix

WHEAT is a nonprofit Arizona based anti hunger and poverty organization involved in the Fair Trade Movement since 1990.

WHEAT’s mission is to educate, advocate, motivate and empower individuals to action. WHEAT and its Fair Trade Initiative, the Hand to Hand Project, work toward global economic equality by engaging our staff and volunteers in positive advocacy efforts at the local and national levels. WHEAT also provides our communities at large with another way to shop and learn more about the ways fair trade is making a difference locally and globally through its Fair Trade store.

We encourage others to join us: FairTrade@HungerHurts.org
