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.
- 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
