To end the cycle of malnourishment for a child in Haiti by providing vital nourishment through a hot meal everyday in school.
Feed2 is an initiative of RMI to help counter the tremendous rate of malnourishment so prevalent (and growing) throughout southern Haiti. RMI works with hundreds of Haitian churches who all have schools providing much needed Christian education. In Haiti, over 60% of education is provided by church and private schools and this is even greater in the south. Through Feed2 we have seen the incredible benefits a feeding program for all the kids in a school brings to its students, their families, their church, and the community. Through Feed2 we are already feeding thousands of kids in schools throughout south Haiti but have a long way to go to reach our goal of feeding 100,000 kids in 300 schools.
Studies have shown the kids who are well nourished will perform better in the short term and that in turn will lead to them being more successful and productive in life in the long term. This is RMI’s vision – to provide that nourishment to give the children hope for a better future.
How We Use Donations
Your donations to Feed2 go directly into making it possible to purchase the food boxes required to feed two children. Additionally, it helps provide funding for the trucks to haul the tons of food to local schools, pay local workers to prepare and deliver the food, and cover costs of storage and distribution. So, your donations help create desperately needed local jobs as well as feeding two children. Your dollar creates a BIG difference in the lives of desperate people.
