PRESENTATION OF MFK
Meds & Food for Kids (MFK) is an independent non-profit organization (NGO) manufacturing Ready-to-Use Foods (RUFs) located in Cap Haitian, Haiti. MFK was established in 2003 with the mission to prevent and treat malnutrition in Haiti through the local production and distribution of nutritious foods. Malnutrition rates in Haiti are high, with one in five children under 5 chronically malnourished (stunting), and one in ten with acute malnutrition (wasting). In 2010, MFK became a member of the PlumpyField® network of Nutriset, an international network of independent local producers of RUFs dedicated to promoting nutritional autonomy in the developing world.
