  • Nutrition.

    TFT meals provide the right amount calories and are nutritionally balanced. TFT meals are high in vegetable content and avoid excess oils, carbohydrates, fats, sugar and salt. On the other side of the table, school meals in East Africa consist of maize flour, beans, green vegetables, fruits, sardines, and more. And all this for just US$0.25 per meal! In the US, $0.25 helps to upgrade a school meal to much healthier with fresh fruits, vegetables and without artificial flavors, preservatives in low-income neighborhood districts.

  • Education.

    Nutrition education is provided to school children as well. Knowing how to eat healthy and having the incentive to do so allows you to feel better and be more productive.  School meals provide incentive for parents to send their children to school, increasing enrollment and attendance, while reducing drop­outs. Once in school, children are better able to focus in class with healthy meals. Thus school meals play a key role in improving the quality of education ­providing children with life­long skills.

  • Engaging Communities.

    Sustainability is paramount in TFT’s projects. We work with schools and communities to ensure involvement through in-kind contributions whenever possible. This may include sharing surplus harvest, learning ecological gardening techniques, and parents volunteering as cooks. A major ancillary benefit is a community’s greater appreciation for the education of their children.

  • Stimulating Local Economies.
