Farm to Plate is an evidence-based program that fosters healthier eating for children. After conducting various surveys, including clinical-nutrition assessments, we can determine the orphans’ nutritional needs and develop a menu cycle that delivers healthy meals.
The foods we prescribe are provided to an expert in organic farming who is able to design and implement a farm on the orphanage property using the latest micro-farming techniques to improve yield and quality of crops.
Long Term Value for Kids
Our Farm to Plate Protocol is implemented in four phases:
- Observation and surveys assessing eating habits, area infrastructure, health and health service factors, status of clean water, etc.;
- Clinical-nutritional assessment measuring the child’s standard daily intake of foods, minerals and water to assess any deficiencies and map improvement over time
- Implementation analyzing the data against industry norms to determine optimum foods and food preparation requirements as well as coordinating with the farming component to raise crops that deliver strong nutritional impact; also includes hand washing and deworming campaigns
- Ongoing evaluation that examines outcomes and encourages ongoing compliancy through financial incentives
