The most recent innovation in the fight against hunger are the effective Ready-to-Use Therapeutic Foods (RUTF) called the Plumpy'Nut® packages. This powerful package contains an extremely nutrient-rich paste made predominately from peanuts and enhanced with a mixture of vitamins and minerals. This revolutionary product requires no refrigeration, clean water or cooking and has a shelf life of two years. By consuming three Plumpy'Nuts® a day for seven weeks, a child can recover from near death to certain survival.
Action Against Hunger has pursued its vision of a world without hunger for over three decades, combating hunger in emergency situations of conflict, natural disaster, and chronic food insecurity. Their reach extends to over 45 countries and their innovative programs in nutrition, food security, livelihoods, water, sanitation and hygiene help more than 9 million people each year.
