How FH Combats Malnutrition Sustainably: A Four Part Series

One of the primary causes of malnutrition and hidden hunger is a nutrient-poor diet. 

People may eat a sufficient amount of calories in staple crops, like maize and rice, but low amounts of essential vitamins and minerals, frequently resulting in "hidden hunger" - producing poor health and underdevelopment. (2014 Global Hunger Index)

Malnutrition and "hidden hunger" can, and does, result in death for many children in developing communities. In response to this reality, Food for the Hungry (FH) Canada incorporates the need for sustainable sources of nutrition into a variety of programming with partner communities.

Four primary ways FH addresses malnutrition is through (1) changing food systems, (2) Cascade Groups, (3) Savings and Loans Groups, and (4) school meal programs. 

To learn about how these programs are sustainably revolutionizing community health, nutrition, and well-being, like us on Facebook and keep your eye on our blog over the next three weeks!

Food for the Hungry is currently shipping Fraser Valley Gleaners soup mix to support school meal programs in Guatemala, Nicaragua, Burundi, and South Africa. Find out more:
