October 2016


We've officially moved to Guatemala!

The MealFlour team met with Primeros Pasos and La Mandarina to hammer out more details about how MealFlour will take shape in the coming months and they are excited to officially start the training program in Candelaria on November 8th. Elizabeth will be returning in November.

Partnership with PEILE (Proyecto Educativo Integral Libertad y Enseñanza) 

MealFlour will start working with PEILE in November to run mealworm farming trainings with more communities effected by malnutrition. This NGO currently provides vocational trainings for adults and runs a program to help children complete primary and secondary school. They work in various sites throughout Guatemala, which is very exciting because this new partnership will allow us to expand our impact.

In order to continue and expand our work, we will be starting a crowdfunding campaign on November 22! Stay tuned for more information on the campaign and how you can support MealFlour's work.
