Hunger and malnutrition
Rescued vegetable portions: 5 million!
We rescued over 500,000 kg which is equivalent to 5 million affordable vegetable portions.
Continuous operations 6 days a week
Since April 2020, we deliver to multiple customers looking to decrease their carbon footprint as well as charities giving vulnerable people access to a healthy diet.
Saved CO2 equivalent: 240 ton CO2-eq!
We rescued over 500,000 kg of food and therefore
saved 240 ton of CO2-equivalent.
Less valuable resources gone to waste
This also means that the resources used - land, water, inputs, energy and capital - to produce the rescued vegetables were not wasted.
And we are only getting started!
Meet Zacheria and Somo, our benificiaries in Mathare Slum!
Food affordability is a real problem in many parts of Nairobi where low income households spend up to 70% of their incomes on food. Many people living hand to mouth. These boys live in the Joy Divine Children's home located in Mathare slum. Farm to Feed delivers fresh produce every week to keep these kids healthy.
Somo is known as the "Chief Comedian" of the orphanage. With his witty humor, he aspires to be an entertainer - we were lucky to witness his natural gift!
Zacheria is known as the mysterious adventurer; his character shines through the picture. He loves being outdoors, discovering new places and exploring new facts of life as he enters his teenage years.
Meet Damaris, our Supply Hub Coordinator in Muranga!
Damaris is the Supply Hub Coordinator in Murang'a. She is a farmer herself and also the liaison between Farm to Feed and the farmers in her specific area. Every week she coordinates with the farmer groups in her area to understand the food loss of the week and prepares the load for the weekly pick up.
The other group members and I had little income of our own, and as a result, little independence. We was even difficult to send our children to school.
With a Farm to Feed Kenya, women are now thriving in their small scale farming. Different women groups proudly told the FTF team that their farming business have given them financial independence and they can now able feed there children.
