STOCKTON ARC are showing “food for thought” http://arconline.co.uk/whats-on/theatre-dance/food -for-thought on March 7th. Although not specifically about FT, this looks like a thought provoking show. Arc serve FT coffee and teas, all year round.
If you’ve been inspired to arrange something, however small please do get in touch and we’ll give it a mention on Facebook and Twitter. This fortnight is all about encouraging ordinary people to think twice about the price they pay for chocolate and then to swap, even if only sometimes, to Fairtrade products. The farmers deserve a living income.
