It all starts with FOOD, but leads to so much more.
It's freedom from human trafficking. It is a platform to learning about a man named Jesus. It is a road to better health. It provides an education. It builds community. It creates jobs. It brings hope to the hopeless. IT IS LIFE.
SERV Food costs just 8 centsper meal.
Our food is a fortified, highly nutritious blend of dehydrated vegetables that is produced locally in the U.S.A. as well as Kenya, and is being distributed throughout the world in several countries. SERV Food also supports U.S.A. and East Africa farming communities. This food is packed with such an amazing blend of nutrients that some people are calling it the “miracle food”.
Since 2006, our SERV 1 FEED 1 program has been providing nutritious dehydrated meals to the people of Turkana in the northwest Kenyan desert facing constant drought and famine. SERV never gives hand-outs and leaves for good. We continually go back to each and every village we invest in. Our Kenyan staff of 20 continues to follow up and build relationships with all we come in contact with. We love empowering villages in desperate need to get back on their feet and create renewed communities. We use all of our projects and programs as a platform to share the love of Christ.
But we aren't just in Kenya. We are now distributing SERV Food throughout Eastern Africa, Cambodia and the Dominican Republic. But we're about to span the globe.
