We believe that every person should have the opportunity to live at their full potential. Access to clean water, nutritious locally grown food, shelter and hope for a healthy future are necessary to seeing this belief actualized.
“About one in nine people on earth do not have enough food to lead a healthy active life”
- World Food Programme
We understand the value of nutritious food to feed the brain, not just food to fill the belly. When proper micronutrients are received, the body can better fight disease, learn, work and reproduce a new generation of healthy children. Similarly, when communities are empowered with infrastructure, education and hope, they have the opportunity to be self sustainable and even help their neighbors do the same.
The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) released a white paper in 2013 detailing how insect farming was a sustainable method to combat hunger and poverty in developing nations. The insect farming industry is still in the beginning stages and we believe it is the best area for out team to participate in to help eradicate malnutrition and poverty. We are reaching out to industry leaders to participate in creating a standardized education framework. The education framework must be simple and easily translated between different cultures and languages. With the right educational toolkit individuals and organizations from around the world can learn and teach a sustainable solution to families and communities that enables them to produce their own nutrient-rich foods. Together we can go far!
"United we can not only end global hunger, we can end global malnutrition for the individual as well as the community."
