Chocolate that is absolutely Divine!

According to Food in America 2002's Food and Wine poll, 46% of Americans said they “couldn’t live without chocolate.” Are you a part of that 46% we lovingly call chocoholics? At NYAC this summer, you can satisfy your craving for chocolate while participating in a service project and supporting fair trade. In the NYAC Coffee Shop, you will be able to sample Divine Chocolate for a free will donation. (The free will donations will be divided and given to designated charitable organizations.)

Divine Chocolate products are manufactured by the Day Chocolate Company, one third of which is owned by a cooperative of Ghanaian cocoa farmers. Divine Chocolate is Fair Trade Certified, which means (among other things) that the farmers received a fair price and that there was no child exploitation during production.

What a mug…
Don’t forget to bring your own coffee mug to NYAC. In the coffee shop, you can laugh during Open Mic times, have a great conversation with peers, check out the bookstore, or simply grab a cup of joe. Let’s save a few trees by sipping from reusable mugs!
