Welcome to Trees That Feed Foundation
Our mission is planting trees to feed people, create jobs and benefit the environment. We help communities in developing countries.
Feeding People: We provide sustainable food sources to communities through fruit-bearing trees with edible fruit and high yields. TTFF supplies trees, equipment and training. This model improves nutrition as well as provides long-term independence from food imports and agrochemicals.
Creating Jobs: TTFF helps develop local, accessible markets for excess food production. Our Factory-in-a-Box provides tools to produce gluten-free breadfruit flour, which is full of nutrients and can be sold and used in endless ways.
Benefiting the Environment: Where required, we assist subsistence farmers in transforming their fields into agro-forests. We encourage planting shade-tolerant trees under canopies of larger, fruit-bearing trees. Focusing on trees requiring minimal use of fertilizers, insecticides and other chemicals, we avoid those that are invasive or genetically engineered.
Collaborating with partners: To leverage our efforts, we collaborate with local partners, including government bodies, NGOs, co-operatives, service clubs, churches, schools and community associations.
While we have expanded into eight countries as of 2015, our work began in Jamaica.

Trees That Feed Foundation has provided over 60,000 trees throughout the globe, with thousands more on the way. We've supplied equipment and training for tree care and fruit processing, while partnering with dozens of organizations. We are excited to expand our program as we continue to grow.
