Hunger remains a leading cause of death among children in the Caribbean and Latin America.
Food For The Poor Canada provides food to children, families and communities, keeping people healthy and productive. We work with individuals and communities to develop sustainable livelihood projects so they are able to grow and sell their own food.
A well fed child can concentrate better in school and have the energy and nutrition they need for healthy development. Adults who are hungry find it difficult to work. We help families achieve food security so they are able to participate fully in their communities and focus on meeting other urgent needs.
