Review for Edesia, North Kingstown, RI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

All Rhode Islanders should be extremely proud to host the one manufacturer in the US of ready to eat therapeutic food, a life saving treatment for severe malnutrition in children. I was privileged to be given a tour of the newly opened high tech plant in the Quonset Point Industrial Park. I saw first hand the dedication of the staff to keep the cartons rolling off the belts for rapid shipment to crisis areas around the world. USAID purchases the product and distributes it as quickly as they can to troubled areas such as Haiti and Syria. Lives are being saved every day because of the dedication of the staff, many of whom are skilled refugees who know the cost of war and natural disasters personally. This organization is definitely worthy of a visit and your support.
