Our program is founded on goal 2 of sustainable development: ending hunger, achieving food security and improving nutrition among young and vulnerable lactating mothers in slums and informal settlements of Eastlands Nairobi. Hunger is often not a food problem; it’s a logistics problem. Nearly 15-30% of food is wasted. Whereas billions of pounds of food go to waste, every year, 1 in 4 people suffer malnourishment.
Our food pantry systems capture surplus food and deliver it to the young vulnerable mothers who need it most. We realize this by engaging all sectors of society (governments, businesses, and civil organizations) in the process. We acquire donated food, much of which would otherwise be wasted, from farms, manufacturers, distributors, retail stores, consumers, and other sources, making it available to the at most risk young lactating mothers in need through an established network of partners. These partners include other nonprofit programs that provide food to the hungry.
