One solution to malnutrition is as simple as growing the right food plants in the right places. With some FPS programs achieving a reduction in malnutrition by as much as 95%, this approach is proven, cost-effective and sustainable. With program partners, FPS encourages the establishment of demonstration food gardens in schools and communities. These provide ongoing education and improve the health and nutrition of participants, who are provided with nutritious food prepared from these gardens. Partnerships with existing providers in Zimbabwe will use FPS publications to educate communities on plant selection and nutrition to grow a range of highly nutritious plants with differing seasonal requirements and maturities. In the process, people in need and, importantly women are empowered as the primary food providers for their families.
