Over the next five years in Haiti, Feed the Future aims to help an estimated 567,000 vulnerable Haitian women, children and family members—mostly smallholder farmers—escape hunger and poverty. More than 176,000 children will be reached with services to improve their nutrition and prevent stunting and child mortality. Significant numbers of additional rural populations will achieve improved income and nutritional status from strategic policy engagement and institutional investments.

Additional information on implementation of Feed the Future in Haiti will be available soon. At any time, you can visit this page to download existing resources on
