Bread fruit grows on trees native to Haiti. However due to deforestation there are very few of them left in the mountains. The fruit can be dried and made into a flour for bread and porridge. It is a good source of protein and nutrients. CI Haiti is feeding the 600 school children bread fruit porridge for lunch twice a week in place of rice. We are planting more trees and teaching local women how to bake with the flour. We have built a wood shop to teach locals how to make drying sheds for making bread fruit flour . Creating Sustainablility.
