Food Program

“I live in a tent camp.  My father does not work and I do not go to school.  The food program is everything to me.  I like talking to the adults there, and being around all the children.  It’s the only thing that keeps me and the others in the tent camp going.  I don’t know what we would do without it.”  – Lenol, age 12


  • Up to 6,000 nutritious meals provided every week (1,200 meals/day Monday – Friday).
  • Cost per meal: approximately 65 cents.
  • Food is purchased in Port-au-Prince from farmers and small distributors.
  • Meals are lovingly prepared and served by our partner, Na Rive.
  • Some children walk miles to attend. For most, it is their only meal of the day.

” I like coming to the food program because they give me a big plate of food, so I am not hungry.  And I get to play with other children.  I love that they teach me songs and other things.  I feel safe at the food program.  Really safe.”  – Rolande, age 7
