Programs: Healthy Families - working with vulnerable mothers with young children to improve nutrition.
Eco Amaranth - teaching farmers to plant amaranth using agro-ecological methods, offering them a nutritional, economic, and environmental opportunities.
Livelihoods - working with community groups to organize to promote the sale and consumption of amaranth to build strong local economies.

Puente a la Salud Comunitaria contributes to food sovereignty and advances the health and well-being of rural communities in Mexico by promoting the cultivation, consumption and commercialization of amaranth.

We envision a world where families and communities live with dignity and exercise their food sovereignty through the sustainable cultivation, consumption, exchange and commercialization of local healthy food sources. We believe amaranth is a strategic crop for achieving this vision owed to its pertinence with the local customs and adaptation to the local environment.
