SUPPORT PALESTINIAN FARMERS AND ENJOY THEIR PRODUCE
The Israel / Palestine Mission Network of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) is pleased to share the following exciting opportunity to support Palestinian farmers (and to stock up your kitchen!) Equal Exchange, a fair trade organization, has partnered with the Palestinian Agricultural Relief Committee to bring Palestinian agricultural products to your doorstep.
We invite you to take advantage of this opportunity by pre-ordering
the Palestinian Farmer's Box described below. We also invite you to learn
about the work Equal Exchange is engaged in to build small markets for Palestinian growers under the illegal occupation of the West Bank
Featuring Five Products from the West Bank
We invite you to participate in an exciting new project with Palestinian farmers in the West Bank.
Equal Exchange has worked with our partner the Palestinian Agricultural Relief Committee (PARC) to assemble a Palestinian Farmers' Box of food products for you to pre-order for yourself, your congregation, or your organization. The box will contain the following exceptional products that will not be available either in our online store or traditional stores:
Maftoul, a hand crafted whole wheat cous cous, made in the traditional way in a Palestinian women's cooperative (800 gm or 28.2 oz)
Za'atar, a fragrant blend of thyme, sumac, and sesame seeds to be used in olive oil dipping or for cooking (400 gm or 14.1 oz)
Freekeh, a toasted green wheat which is cooked and used as a side dish, or to stuff meats or large vegetables like squash (800 gm or 28.2 oz)
Almonds, roasted and salted, almonds in a partial shell which can be opened by hand for snacking (250 gm or 8.8 oz)
Medjoul dates, the most succulent dates you will ever taste, for snacks, baking, or cooking (500 gm or 17.6 oz)
This is a one time pre-order offer only. The total price of the Farmers’ Box is: $50 plus shipping.
The cost of exporting these items requires that we reach 1,000 orders. At this time we’re seeking firm commitments from individuals and organizations in order to reach this goal. Once we've reached this amount we'll contact you to let you know that we're ready to receive your payment.
Pre-order before March 31, 2018
To participate complete our online pre-order form with the number of Palestinian Farmer Boxes you are committing to buy, along with your name, street address (no PO boxes), email, and telephone number.
PRE-ORDER NOW »
Shortly after the deadline of March 31, we’ll alert you if we have reached our goal of 1,000 pre-orders. If we’re successful, we'll then provide all of the relevant information for payment via credit card and shipping. We'll also tell you when the order is shipping and when it's expected to arrive (likely 10-12 weeks after placing the order). If we don't receive 1,000 orders, we’ll notify you that we were unable to pursue this initiative at this time.
Please spread the word about this effort to assist Palestinian farmers on the West Bank. And while you're at it, think about purchasing some PARC olive oil
from our webstore.
