Trees that Feed 

 
Our mission is planting fruit trees to feed people, create jobs and benefit the environment. We supply individuals and groups with quantities of the best varieties of fruit trees, while being sensitive to the environment. We provide trees for planting in small farms, field margins, agroforests and urban backyards. We will also work with commercial orchards on large scale planting. Most of our work thus far has been planting breadfruit trees in Haiti and Jamaica. We also provide equipment and training to individuals and groups for production of post-harvest food products. TTFF is proud of the successful young entrepreneurs we have helped to launch. We purchase and distribute fruit and locally produced post-harvest products such as a tasty breadfruit porridge to schools, orphanages and hospitals. And we provide education to children about the advantages of planting trees.
