Meds & Food for Kids (MFK) is dedicated to meeting the essential nutritional needs of malnourished children, pregnant and nursing women and school children using Ready-to-Use Foods (RUFs) produced in our factory in Cap-Haitien, Haiti.

By transferring skills and knowledge to our Haitian workers and engaging farmers to source local raw materials, we break the cycle of poverty and sustainably stimulate economic development.

MFK works to transform the lives of malnourished children and mothers in Haiti. By reversing the devastating effects of malnutrition, children are given a second chance to thrive physically and cognitively and contribute to their country’s future. Our vision is that one day, Haitian children will receive optimum nutrition from conception to adulthood.

A Plan For Haiti

Treatment

Medika Mamba has a more than 90% success rate of curing malnutrition. Malnutrition in Haiti is the result of a combination of factors, most of which are not addressed by rescue operations and handouts.

Jobs & Training

By providing jobs for Haitian people, we help to break the cycle of poverty that leads to malnutrition. Medika Mamba is made in Cap Haitien, Haiti.

Agriculture

By purchasing raw materials in Haiti and sharing knowledge with farmers about how to improve their crops, we help develop markets and encourage production and growth. MFK agronomists work with farmers, helping to improve the quality of their peanuts and their yield.

Research & Development

MFK engages in research to development to test the efficacy of RUTF products for use in a spectrum of nutritional deficiencies. In addition, MFK works with local farmers and partners to test varieties of peanuts and farming strategies that will help farmers improve yields and produce peanuts free from aflatoxins.
