FOOD 4 FARMERS

"LOS MESES FLACOS" or THE THIN MONTHS

Food 4 Farmers is a non profit that works with coffee farmers in Latin America to address the problem of “los meses flacos,” or “the thin months.” Every year, coffee farmers and their families experience 1-4 months of starvation, when there is nothing left to harvest or sell, and therefore no income to provide for their family.  Food 4 Farmers addresses this complex issue by teaching farmers a new trade that will enable them to have an alternative source of income throughout the year.

The work presented here is from my travels to Mexico + Guatemala in 2016 and Nicaragua in 2013. These photographs document their work with coffee farmers and their families, and provide a glimpse into their daily lives.
