More than 820 million people around the world don’t have enough to eat, many of them in rural areas.
Overreliance on commodity crops, like coffee, has left millions of families around the world struggling to put food on the table, year after year. At the same time, a flood of cheap, nutrient-deficient, calorie-rich food has created local food deserts, leaving many farming families more malnourished than ever. We believe that every family should have enough nutritious food every day.
Food 4 Farmers is a non-profit organization that works with coffee farmers to disrupt the global food system. We partner with families and farmers’ organizations to create thriving food hubs, diversify income, and implement sustainable farming practices that promote biodiversity and ecosystem resiliency throughout Latin America.
We don’t deliver a simplistic, one-size-fits-all model. We help communities develop community appropriate solutions and strategies and support them in managing and measuring their progress.
