Fighting Starvation Through Science
GreaterGood.org partners with Partners in Health (PIH) to provide children with the food they need to fight malnutrition. Children receive Ready-to-Use Therapeutic Foods (RUTFs), high-calorie, fortified peanut butter-like paste containing a balance of lipids, sugar, and protein (macronutrients), vitamins, minerals (micronutrients), and calories. RUTFs require no preparation, are difficult to overeat, and they keep months or even years after opening. RUTFs offer a 90% - 95% recovery rate for severely malnourished children and allow them to recover at home.
