Food Security and Nutrition

Fabretto provides substantive meals to children, contributing to their healthy growth and development. In response to high rates of undernourishment, Fabretto implements a school lunch program that provides our students with a nourishing meal every weekday. Produce from Fabretto-sponsored school gardens fortify the daily meals. The program also includes an educational component, training parents and students in nutrition and sustainable agriculture.

Program Objectives:
  • Prevent and treat malnutrition through nutritious daily school lunches that are fortified with essential vitamins and minerals
  • Encourage healthy eating habits through training for parents, teachers, and students
  • Plant school gardens and train community members to support the development of home gardens
  • Protect the planet and maximize production by teaching sustainable agriculture techniques to students and community members
