FIKA Coffee today unveiled its limited edition lingonberry macaron, developed for The Hunger Project in honor of International Women’s Day. The macaroon will be sold at Fika’s 17 Manhattan locations from March 7 – 20. One dollar of each purchase will go to The Hunger Project to support its work to empower women in 24,000 communities worldwide.
“We’re very excited to have created this special flavor to support The Hunger Project to celebrate women everywhere for International Women’s Day,” said Lena Khory, FIKA Co-Founder. “Their work empowering women through leadership development, education, microfinance and skills training is so important, and we wanted to do something special to honor and support that.”
The United Nation’s International Women’s Day, March 8, is a day to look at progress made, call for change and celebrate acts of courage and determination by ordinary women who have played an extraordinary role in the history of their countries and communities.
“We are thrilled that FIKA is supporting our work to empower women across Africa, Latin America and South Asia,” said Åsa Skogström Feldt, President and CEO of The Hunger Project. “Women bear almost all responsibility for meeting basic needs of the family, yet are systematically denied the resources and freedom of action they need to fulfill this responsibility. This campaign in partnership with FIKA will support awareness of the critical work of empowering women and promoting gender equality so we can together end hunger for all.”
