Food As A Change Agent
Relief organizations, like our partners, use food aid to support sustainable development programs like school feeding programs for children, adult education and career development, as well as agricultural training initiatives. In addition, the aid is provided to areas hit by natural disaster and helps people get back on their feet. Communities are able to recover more quickly if they are well-nourished.
The aid doesn't just feed people. It is a resource that, along with existing local resources, creates leverage in a fight against other systemic challenges like limited childhood education, poor maternal health, economic insecurities, gender equality, and the prevalence of preventable diseases.
That's not all. In many cases, the food shipping containers also are packed with other necessary medical or educational needs. Each container of aid that we help send is a vessel of love for our neighbors in need!
