Siena College in Loudonville, N.Y. is the first Catholic college to become a certified Fair Trade College, meaning fair trade products replace their counterparts in all the school's dining areas in order to promote decent conditions for agricultural workers in Latin America and Africa. Other schools and parishes interested in this endeavor can contact Catholic Relief Services, www.crsfairtrade.org
