Food For The Poor Tree Planting Project takes Root in St. Lucia

Food For The Poor is working with Taiwan’s Tse-Xin Organic Agriculture Foundation to plant 10,000 fruit-bearing trees on the campuses of 60 primary and secondary schools across the Caribbean country of St. Lucia. In addition to the fruit trees, Food For The Poor also will build 20 greenhouses to assist 20 basic schools with their individual feeding programs. “St. Lucia is a beautiful mountainous island and Food For The Poor is honored to be a part of this tree planting project that will provide additional nourishment for students and a source of revenue for local famers,” said Robin Mahfood, President/CEO of Food For The Poor. “Ten thousand trees is a massive undertaking that’s being made possible by the generous donors of Food For The Poor and the Government of Taiwan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs.” For more than a decade, the Taiwan Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and the Taiwan International Cooperation and Development Fund have been cherished partners of Food For The Poor. Since 2007, Food For The Poor has received more than 5 million pounds of rice through Taiwan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs for Haiti.
