Trees That Feed Foundation has planted over 180,000 food bearing trees in Jamaica since 2009. Co-founders Mary and Mike McLaughlin were born, educated, and married on the island.
We are now working with hundreds of farmers, as well as schools, breadfruit flour producers, and bakers of breadfruit products.
In addition to trees, we have supplied equipment to several entrepreneurs.
We donate flour and breadfruit bullas – delicious, nutritious biscuits – to local schools.
The Jamaican government is very supportive of Trees That Feed. We work closely with The Forestry Department and were presented with a Forest Hero Award in 2023.
Here is a map of farmers who planted food bearing trees donated by TTFF between 2009 and 2019.
We also conduct research and monitoring projects. Click here to see our Breadfruit Yield study map, funded by Conservation Food & Health Foundation. And click here to see our breadfruit logistics study, funded by sponsor Patagonia Foundation.
