Train. Empower. Sustain.
Mission:FoodPossible (M:FP) was created to combat global hunger, promote food security and reduce food waste.
According to a recent report from the United Nations, 815 million people are currently hungry, 66 million primary school-age children attend classes hungry and 2 billion people are expected to be undernourished by 2050.
M:FP's comprehensive program was designed to train, empower and sustain communities. Utilizing our proprietary Most Valuable Produce (MVP) scoring tool that determines a community's most critical indigenous produce for hunger alleviation, we develop unique, interactive 2-day training modules that focus on food security, food preparation and food safety.
We currently have two tracks: Community Food Security and School Food Security.
Mission:FoodPossible's three pillars are key to the eradication of hunger and food insecurity.
TRAIN The Community
EMPOWER The Community
SUSTAIN The Community
"Knowledge is power. Information is liberating. Education is the premise of progress, in every society, in every family." Kofi Annan
Our chef-led, interactive training gives participants the knowledge they need to identify when they or members of their community are experiencing food insecurity and provide them with effective and accessible tools to become food secure. M:FP trainees include kitchen staff from schools, parents and members of the community.
"When we empower communities to create their own solutions, we yield results that alienating them could never achieve." Peter Ivey
Once we have identified a community’s Most Valuable Produce (MVP) to achieve food security, we train the leaders and feeders of those communities about food security, food preparation and food safety. Participants are empowered to create innovative and healthy dishes, using the foods they know and love, for themselves, their families and their communities. Recipes, creative tools and tips are provided.
"If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together." African Proverb
Although grounded in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) #2, Zero Hunger, M:FP addresses 5 of the 17 SDGs. From No Poverty to Quality Education, Mission:FoodPossible stimulates the agricultural industry by emphasizing the tenet: eat what you grow. For many participants, the M:FP training is the first step in the acquisition of relevant skills required for the culinary field. The MVP scoring tool has proven to be a useful guide in enabling the responsible consumption of indigenous produce and reducing food waste.
