Chocolate Bars

Once again this holiday season, we will be selling Equal Exchange chocolate bars.  They are sustainably sourced and provide a living wage for Latin American farmers.  AND in this case since this is a fundraiser, the proceeds will also benefit the health work of Konbit Sante in northern Haiti.  They will be available in several varieties, and sell for $5 each or 3 for $12.  I also have a limited supply of Equal Exchange Baking Cocoa and Hot Chocolate Mix ($6/can).  Thank you in advance for your support!
