Agricultural Development

Stronger food systems build stronger communities.

We know that local agriculture is a key part of the sustainable solution to eliminating hunger. Investing in local agricultural inputs in developing countries strengthens food systems, which in turn reduces hunger and malnutrition.

MFK’s agronomists spend each growing season transferring new skills to dozens of farmers to improve the quality and yield of their peanut crops.

Skills and knowledge about soil conservation, crop rotation, aflatoxin control, and more lead to greater success for these farmers, who then can sell their peanuts to MFK for RUTF production.

By supporting farmers in-country, those farmers benefit financially with increased crop production to sell in markets, and families benefit with greater access to nutritious food. More than 2,700 Haitian farmers have been trained by MFK to better feed their families and communities.
