Catholic Relief Services Partnership

Make a world of difference by joining faith and Fair Trade.

Serve your parish coffee, tea and chocolate that supports small farmers and CRS projects.

Serve the coffee that serves the farmers. Catholic parishes nationwide are supporting small farmers, living their values and serving the Church by offering fairly traded coffee, tea, chocolate and more to their communities. Equal Exchange is proud to partner with Catholic Relief Services to help make a positive impact for farmer co-ops worldwide, and it all starts with your parish!

Connect with other Catholics

Join our network of over 600 Catholic parishes around the country that are making a difference through Fair Trade. Serving and selling fairly traded foods is an easy and meaningful way to support farmers while connecting with your local and worldwide Catholic community. Your parish will thank you!

Serve our delicious coffee, tea and cocoa at fellowship after Mass, in the rectory and at meetings.

Sell fairly traded, organic products at table sales, fundraising events or holiday bazaars.

Connect with small farmers

Show solidarity with small farmers by choosing Fair Trade, which gives farmers fair and stable prices, affordable credit and supports community development and social programs.
