Across the world, food security remains a growing concern. For underserved families in the Caribbean, this is an even greater reality as our islands’ import-dependent economies are susceptible to international food supply-chain challenges. The effects of climate change have also negatively affected traditional farming practices.
As we plan for secure, sustainable futures, the Sandals Foundation is committed to providing the skills and tools to create resilient food supply systems and food forests in local schools and communities ensuring no child or family goes hungry.
Together we can strengthen the resilience of a region to meet its nutritional needs. By providing key equipment, training and supplies, investing in the increased use of climate smart farming techniques, providing access to and knowledge in advanced farming technology, supporting best practices in water use, waste reduction and greenhouse gas emissions, we can build the resilience of our islands and the families that call this region home.
