Meeting the food and nutritional requirements of the children in our care is one of our core responsibilities. Staples such as rice, potatoes, and corn are sourced from local suppliers, while most of the fresh produce will eventually be grown within the Academy’s nutritional garden. To minimize expenditures on food, Today’s Promises will have long-term agreements with suppliers to purchase staple foods in bulk. From time to time, the organization will receive food deliveries from aid organizations such as USAID to help augment the food supply at the institution.
The premises of the Academy will include a dedicated vegetable garden. This garden will serve both educational and practical purposes. Children will learn how to help their caretakers and ground staff cultivate and harvest the garden.
