We mean it when we say you'll taste the love in every bite!
Through a collaboration with Meds & Food for Kids, with each purchase of Peanuts4Peanuts, a malnourished child in Haiti will receive a dose of micronutrient fortified peanut butter. Medika Mamba (medicinal peanut butter) is made with ground roasted peanuts, powdered milk, cooking oil, sugar, vitamins and minerals. It is known as Ready-To-Use Therapeutic Food because it does not require water or any preparation, a deterring treatment factor in many developing countries. After 6-8 weeks of treatment with medicinal peanut butter, 85% of children recover – far better than the 25% recovery rate with older treatment methods.
Through the employment of Haitian farmers and factory employees to produce the Medika Mamba, your purchase will help to generate income and reduce poverty in Haiti. Food insecurity is often a result of poverty. By addressing the root of the problem, your decision to buy Peanuts4Peanuts over other peanut butter brands has a farreaching impact on the poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere.
WHO WE ARE
Co-Founder and CEO
Lizzie spent four years at Middlebury College studying economics and its intersection with global health. Currently, she is an economic consultant at the Boston-based Analysis Group. She has had the opportunity to undertake pro bono economic advising for institutions in Haiti, including GHESKIO HIV/TB clinic and Partners in Health. During her most recent trip to Haiti, she visited a medicinal peanut butter operation which gave her the idea to start Peanuts4Peanuts!
Co-Founder and President
Kendra graduated from the University of Vermont with a degree in management and economics. While at school, Kendra created a microloan program for a foundation based in Uganda. When Lizzie told her about the Haitian peanut butter facility, she began to brainstorm ways to bring this idea to life. With her business degree and her first-hand experience developing the microloan program, she helped to take the ingenuity of the one-for-one model and apply it to peanut butter.
