FFCC's Mission Statement:
FFCC's international work began in Mexico, but has expanded to countries all over the world. Our focus is to bring assistance through nutritious food, safe drinking water, medical care, solar power & educational support.
FFCC's Fight Against Hunger:
FFCC, through community supported food packaging events, provides healthy nutritious non-perishable meals to orphaned and abandoned children and to help supplement those in areas of Haiti where they are desperate for food while we look to support them in finding more sustainable options.
We are working with both local and national leaders in Haiti as well as experts from here in the states to address these complicated issues.
FFCC Bringing Medical Care & Education:
FFCC has been fortunate to attract doctors and nurses from medical institutions throughout San Diego County like Sharp Rees Stealy Hospital, Palomar Pomerado Hospital, Kaiser Hospital and Scripps Hospital. In addition, medical professionals from Southern California, the Los Angeles area, Northern California, Washington and New Hampshire have also contributed to our work. As a result of the highly qualified medical personnel, FFCC has hosted a number of mobile medical clinics in remote places in countries where there is little to no medical access or resources.
Agroecology Project In Haiti
During the April 2014 trip to Haiti, FFCC's vision to see a sustainable food source in Haiti intrigued two team members. Bryce Rauterkus studied Ecology at UC Santa Barbara and Connor McClelland studies Agronomy and Soil Science at Kansas State University. Bryce and Connor are spending 2015 in Haiti, working with FFCC on land that locals have granted to FFCC. With this project, we desire to supply needed resources to the farming community of Gressier to produce enough nutritious food to end hunger within the community and eventually feed neighboring communities as well.
