GMCR donates US$200,000 to Coffeelands Trust

Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, Inc. has donated US$200,000 to the Coffeelands Trust, a fund that connects the international coffee community to victims of conflict in coffee growing regions. The Trust provides direct funding to coffee farmers and their families to improve coffee farms and help with food security, and it pays for artificial limbs, physical therapy, vocational training and other related services that have a direct and lasting impact on improving the lives of coffee farmers and their communities. The money has been provided in the form of a two-year grant that will help coffee farmers revitalize their farms by improving their mobility, planting new crops, and helping survivors find employment opportunities throughout the value chain of the coffee industry.
