For each purchase you make on Slow Pour Supply, a percentage of the sale price will be donated to charitable organizations that help support frontline food & beverage workers; stronger, fact-based history curricula for middle and high school students; and sustainability initiatives to improve the lives of people everywhere. Slow Pour Supply also actively sponsors and supports initiatives that foster diversity and inclusion in our coffee community and involve baristas, coffee learners, education labs and competitors in these efforts. Whether it’s through a purchase from Slow Pour or by directly joining this effort, you can help drive positive change, too.

TEACHING PEOPLE'S HISTORY
Zinn Education Project
Slow Pour Supply is proud to support the Zinn Education Project, and project collaboration between Rethink Schools and Teaching for Change. Slow Pour Supply believes that to change the schema we have to support factual education from the ground up. The Zinn Education Project promotes and supports the teaching of people’s history in classrooms across the country. For more than ten years, the Zinn Education Project has introduced students to a more accurate, complex, and engaging understanding of history than is found in traditional textbooks and curricula. With your support, they can add classroom film clips, make the site interactive, add lessons for the elementary grades, and hold summer writing workshops for teachers to share and document their stories for their free to use website.
