To end the cycle of malnourishment for a child by providing vital nourishment through a hot meal everyday in school.
Feed2 is an initiative of RMI to help counter the tremendous rate of malnourishment so prevalent throughout southern Haiti. RMI works with hundreds of Haitian churches who all have schools providing much needed Christian education. In Haiti, over 60% of education is provided by church and private schools and this is even greater in the south. Through Feed2 we see the incredible benefits a feeding program for all the kids in a school brings to its students, their families, their church, and the community. Through Feed2 we are already feeding kids in schools throughout south Haiti but have a long way to go to reach our goal of feeding 100,000 kids in 300 schools.
Studies have shown the kids who are well nourished will perform better in the short term and that in turn will lead to them being more successful and productive in life in the long term. This is RMI’s vision – to provide that nourishment to give the children hope for a better future.
How We Use Donations
Your $10 monthly donations to Feed2 makes it possible to purchase the food boxes required to feed two children. Additionally, it provides funding for transporting the food to local schools, pays for workers to prepare the food, and covers costs of storage and distribution. Your donations help create desperately needed local jobs as well as feeding two children. Your dollar creates a BIG difference in the lives of desperate people.

Feed2 provides the chicken flavored rice-based meals packed with the vitamins, protein, and minerals needed for optimal nutrition. Feed2 also provides local jobs as we pay the school to hire local women to cook the meal. The students bring their own bowl and spoon to school each day. Each teacher then assigns students in their classroom different responsibilities in distributing the food for each child in the class, teaching them leadership and responsibility. Not only do they eat a good meal, but it is a learning experience as well.
