I am interested in starting a fundraising initiative in my cafe which would benefit by donating coffee grounds. Does anyone know of an organization or group, looking for this type of donation? I was doing a little research and as we all know, coffee grounds can be used for many purposes and i was thinking of how farmers in less financially sound areas could benefit from the donation. I may be completely out of my mind on this one but I thought it was worth a discussion...
I'm open to suggestions and looking for a charitable cause that would have an obvious tie to the coffee business.
lisa, check out www.curbly.com for the top 10 good uses for coffee grounds...some sane, some not so sane!
also, i think it was member stickman on here that suggested instead of offering customers a reward card of some type, how about donating that same money to an independent farmer of your choice? thought that that was a great idea. i think your roaster might be able to put you in touch with a small farm operation.
just some thoughts!
have a good one,

We compost our coffee grounds (and egg shells) and use the compost in our gardens.
