Food Plant Solutions - Malnutrition Robs Children of their Futures
The Food Plant Solutions project was designed to address malnutrition through the use of readily available and local food sources. We create educational publications that help people understand the connection between plant selection and nutrition, and empower them to grow a range of highly nutritious plants with differing seasonal requirements and maturities. We identity food plants that are potentially important for a country or region because they are suited to the environment, they are high in nutrients and they grow with minimal inputs. This is a sustainable solution that empowers people in need, not just for now, but into the future.
Food Plant Solutions does not send people in-country, but forms partnerships with existing aid providers who use the FPS publications to educate communities, and particularly women and children, on the nutrient value of their local foods.
