Fair Trade Shopping Event ~ Friday, August 26th for 7-9pm @ Le Peep’s Grill Flower Mound
1121 Flower Mound Rd. Suite 590 Flower Mound, TX 75028 ~ 281.300.2633


The Dinner Project is partnering this Friday with SERRV to eradicate poverty through Fair Trade Shopping. SERRV is a nonprofit organization that provides opportunity and support to artisans and farmers worldwide.  For more than 60 years, SERRV has worked through their direct connections with low-income artisans and farmers. This empowers those producers to develop their own business and to foster sustainable development.  This event is a great way to do something wonderful for you, others, and the world we share.  Here are two stories about women artisans, and please visit to find out more about the organization and the products and artisans we will be supporting.
