Fighting Malnutrition Sustainably, Part 1: Changing Food Systems

FH Canada helps communities change their food systems to be more efficient, productive, and reliable. This leads to improved soil, better family health, and increased household income. 

Through diversifying crops (growing more than one grain, planting beans, cultivating fruit trees, etc.), farmers are able to bring home more nutritious food for their families to consume. In addition, animal husbandry programs enable families to access dairy, eggs, and occasional meat. They also use their animals' manure to create organic fertilizer that enriches the soil of their gardens and fields.

Families are shown how to create "kitchen gardens" - essentially backyard gardens where they can grow nutrient rich and desperately needed vegetables, legumes, and leafy greens. The result? Happier, healthier families!
