Chocolate for Positive Social Change--Fundraiser

Our 2022 fundraiser was held at the Monday Club in San Luis Obispo, CA. It was a great success with 60 people came on a very stormy night to hear about the progress and programs for PH&F. There was village made chocolate, cocoa beans, cocoa powder and other chocolate product from the village. Refreshments of chocolate confections such as moles, brownies, and Brandy Alexander were served. We watched videos of the villages and discussed participants feedback and comments. It was a successful evening with donations totaling over $13,000.

There are Village made Chocolate bars, both dark and milk availible. 20 bars for $100 donatioon.

Installing the Broyeuse

Founded in 2006, PH&F initially focused on distributing tools to cocoa farmers. In 2013, PH&F re-focused its efforts on building mini-chocolate factories. Here we see the cocoa liquor mill being installed at the Depa plant in 2017.
