flora-sign1If you are already a devotee of Flora, you know the restaurant and bar is the creation of Dona Savitsky and Thomas Schnetz and can be found at the corner of Telegraph and 19th across from Oakland’s renovated Fox Theatre.  This also happens to be TransFair USA's beloved neighborhood. flora-interior1Flora’s decor celebrates opulent Art Deco style with high ceilings, a checkered floor, and classic elongated sconces to light your way. The menu offers carefully crafted cocktails and reinvented American classics: sweet pea soup with crisp pork belly or Yukon Gold potato pave with morel mushrooms and summer truffles. We invite you to save your appetite for Flora's fine food and drink and join TransFair USA at Flora Restaurant and Bar the evening of Wednesday, August 25th.

For every Rosemary Collins you sip or pan-roasted halibut you savor that night, TransFair USA receives 10 percent as a donation towards its Fair Trade work to improve the lives of 1.5 million farmer families in 60 countries across the globe.

As a nonprofit organization, donations to TransFair USA help us keep growing the global Fair Trade network to include more farmer and worker families. Over the last few years, charitable contributions helped us expand Fair Trade in the U.S. to include wine from Chile, honey from Mexico, and roses from Ecuador.
