I volunteered in MFK’s administrative office in St. Louis, and was very impressed by the impact such a small organization can have in changing Haitian children and farmers’ lives. What I find truly amazing about this organization are its efforts to address the root cause of severe malnutrition in Haiti by creating jobs and spreading knowledge about farming practices to produce better yields. During my time with the organization, MFK was in the middle of building its new factory, whose completion will produce enough Medika Mamba (the Ready-to-Use-Therapeutic Food) to treat 80,000 children every year. The organization has come a long way from its humble beginnings with a hand grinder in a church schoolroom, and I believe MFK will continue to accomplish great things and save thousands of lives. I would highly recommend Meds & Food for Kids for interns and volunteers looking for a worthwhile experience.
