WHAT DO WE DO?
1

Food Rescue

Rescue surplus fresh produce and distribute it to low-income neighbourhoods in Managua.

2

Food Banks

Share packs of fruits and veggies with families to cook at home.

3

Hands-on Food Education

Motivate healthy food choices by experiencing food together in a fun environment.

WHY?
In Nicaragua huge quantities of fresh, nutritious produce goes to waste from food markets every day.
At the same time, low-income families struggle to put food on the table.
 
They also face risks of serious long-term health problems due to poor nutrition.
HOW DOES IT WORK?

FRom Markets

Wholesale Vendors in the market donate surplus fresh produce. Volunteers rescue, sort and re-distribute the food to Community Centres around the city.

To Communities

Each Community Centre runs a Rescued Food Sharing Service. Community Members arrive to collect a pack of fresh produce that contains enough food for over 30 meal portions and a variety of at least 5 kinds of products.

To families

The change only happens at home. Interactive cooking and food education  in each community motivate dietary changes.
