NEED STREET FOOD: FEEDING PORTSMOUTH AND FEEDING THE WORLD
We’re in business to feed the world — that’s why every ORDER YOU MAKE AT NEED STREET FOOD FUNDS THE SHIPMENT OF packets of life-saving Plumpy'Nut food to a programme treating malnutrition.
Three million children die every year from SEVERE malnutrition.
One in four of the world’s children are malnourished.
One hundred percent of this is preventable.
Preventative measures: Plumpy'Nut and Plump'd
Plumpy’Nut is a nutrient enriched peanut paste used to treat emergency malnutrition cases. It contains essential fats, carbohydrates, and protein as well as added vitamins and minerals. It can alleviate a starving child from impending illness or death. It has a shelf life of 18 months and requires no preparation to use.
Plump’d raise funds for the purchase and distribution of Plumpy’Nut to vulnerable children in conflict zones and food crises.
Run completely by volunteers, they use the funds raised directly for the purchase and distribution of Plumpy’Nut.
8,1919 PACKETS DELIVERED
Before Need Street Food, there was Feed Hot Dog Co. — we started as a mobile street food cart slinging gourmet hot dogs. During the year-and-a-half journey between starting Feed Hot Dog Co. and evolving into Need Street Food, we were able to fund the shipment of 8,1919 packets of Plumpy’Nut overseas, to Syria and Yemen.
