Who We Are
Purpose and Mission
Charitable groups work independently and cooperatively to provide nutritious dehydrated food for the needy in over 50 nations worldwide.
Surplus food is donated by growers, distributors and packaging companies.
Over 25 percent of vegetables grown in North America are non-saleable because of cosmetic 'deficiencies' of size, colour or shape or because it has reached its best before date. This food is ploughed under in growers' fields or ends up in a landfill site.
A volunteer labour force processes the food in a variety of ways to produce a nutritious dehydrated product that is economical to ship and easily prepared for consumption. This is primarily mixed vegetables and fruit snacks to be used as a versatile product in various cultures.
The dehydrated food is donated to mission and relief organizations who ship it to the areas of need and ensure that it is utilized effectively in their relief and development efforts.
