Haiti Breathes

Port-au-Prince, Haiti

The Haiti Breathes program is a partnership between World Central Kitchen and Switch Haiti. This project targets haitibreathsbeforeafterschools in Port au Prince and surrounding areas for cook stove conversion from charcoal to liquid petroleum gas and provides food safety and sanitation training.

World Central Kitchen’s role:

  • Investing in the equipment for clean cookstove conversion and school kitchen layout
  • Providing training for school cooks in food safety and sanitation
  • Using the expertise of our Chef Network to provide insight into kitchen layout, cook training, and other project components.

Current operations and future plans:

  • To date, we have converted 150 schools to clean cookstoves, and trained 600 school cooks in food safety and sanitation.
  • This initiative also improved the health of over 60,000 students through food safety/sanitation practices implemented by school cooks.
  • In addition to clean cookstoves, we have used chef-expertise to design kitchen layouts that maximize space and efficiency. We provided preparation tables and new equipment to support the new kitchens.

4 million people worldwide die each year from complications due to cooking with charcoal and wood, but with the help of Haiti Breathes, World Central Kitchen is working to reduce this number.
