In Nepal, a large percentage of the population is undernourished—in many cases because animal protein is not widely available across the country. The mountainous terrain and lack of infrastructure makes transportation and distribution to remote areas very difficult.
In this video, follow Moushumi Shrestha as she demonstrates how Shreenagar Farms has partnered with these organizations to feed hungry children in Nepal and educate the public about the importance of animal protein. Together, with funding from Tyson Foods, they have built and trained a network of poultry farmers to raise laying hens on farms near seven rural schools. Shreenagar Farms buys eggs back from the farmers and delivers them to school children in these areas. Today, they provide 5,000 eggs per week to 700 kids.
As a social enterprise effort, our investment also makes good business sense. Our partnership with OneEgg not only allows us to help feed hungry children in areas where they need it most, it also helps to facilitate market growth for Cobb-Vantress, a wholly owned subsidiary of Tyson Foods.
This partnership is just one more way we’re raising the world’s expectations for how much good food can do.
