Coffee for a Cause
The Coffee Commune Mini Farm Blend coffee is helping fight hunger - simply by enjoying a cup of coffee each morning, at home or the office.
The Mini Farm Project, a community-driven organisation founded by Nick Steiner, is taking a unique approach to addressing the rising hunger and food insecurity issue, by creating a network of charity farms.
“If we sold 20,000 bags of coffee, we could fully fund a one-acre farm for one year - growing up the 40,000 equivalent meals for people in need.”
Currently, they support Meals on Wheels Moreton Bay, Freedom Church Pantry Bribie Island, Breakfast Club Redcliffe, and Roceels Charity Marsden with free food donations from the Samford and Loganlea State High farms. The project aims to create a network of charity farms that will produce a variety of produce including vegetables, fruits, herbs, wild edibles, honey, bush foods, chicken eggs, and fish, to reduce food insecurity.
To help fund the farms, the Mini Farm Project has partnered with Australia’s Coffee King, Phillip Di Bella, to create a unique, flavoursome, freshly-roasted coffee. The Coffee Commune Mini Farm Blend coffee offers a great way to fight hunger - simply by enjoying a cup of coffee each morning at home or at the office. Each 1kg bag sold goes directly towards funding the charity farms and feeding Australians in need.
“If we sold 20,000 bags of coffee, we could fully fund a one-acre farm for one year - growing up the 40,000 equivalent meals for people in need,” said Nick Steiner.
With over two million households experiencing severe food insecurity in Australia in the last twelve months, both Nick and Phillip believe that access to nutritious food is a right, not a privilege and are striving to reduce food insecurity in Queensland, creating a brighter future for vulnerable communities.
“The Coffee Commune is excited to work with Nick from The Mini Farm Project,” said Phillip. “We are passionate about this project because it embodies everything we stand for: community, networks, and supporting those in need.”
By indulging in a cup of Coffee Commune Mini Farm Blend coffee, you can relish the satisfaction of knowing that you are making a tangible impact today, as all proceeds from coffee sales are allocated to supporting the farms.
