Fairtrade is on the core breakfast menu this month

Fairtrade Fortnight 2016ENJOY a Fairtrade and Local Breakfast at the newly refurbished Youth and Wellbeing Centre (The Core) in Egremont at the start of Fairtrade Fortnight on Monday February 29 from 8am to 10am.

The theme of Fairtrade fortnight (February 29 – March 13) is “Before you finish eating breakfast in the morning you’ve depended on more than half the world”.

Carole Woodman said: “Millions of farmers and workers in developing countries who work hard every day to grow the food we eat still don’t earn enough to know where their next meal comes from – they don’t have food security. We have similar issues in the UK, with our farmers not getting enough for their milk or pork to cover costs. The aim is to join with everyone to make this the biggest breakfast ever.”
