Our nutrition program started as a result of our education initiative. We quickly discovered that many of our 230 children were not properly nourished and were having a hard time concentrating and learning in school. That is when we decided to go to the local market and buy a peanut grinder. We hired a woman to make peanut butter for the children to eat before school, and that is when the nutrition program had launched.
Through our partnership with Convoy of Hope and hundreds of partners in Haiti, we are able to serve over 91,000 meals a day to children in schools and orphanages throughout Haiti. For many children, a school meal provided by Mission of Hope may be the only food they receive that day.
The Nutrition program allows us to provide meals, vitamins, health education, and hope in Jesus to a generation in need in a way that is economically responsible and beneficial to the communities.
With our partner Convoy of Hope, we built a 35,000 square foot warehouse. This will allow us to reach our goal of serving 200,000 meals per day to hungry children in Haiti. Our partners who will help us reach this goal include Convoy of Hope, Feed My Starving Children, Stop Hunger Now, and Kids Against Hunger.
You can help provide nutritious meals to children in Haiti by hosting a meal packing event at your church, business, or school.
