Smart School Kitchen, Palmiste Tampe

Palmiste Tampe, Haiti

smartschool kitchen

In the mountains of Haiti, World Central Kitchen has provided community training on cleaner forms of cooking. In partnership with CESAL, WCK has implemented a Smart School Kitchen in the local Palmiste Tampe School, and is providing ongoing training and support to ensure that the project thrives.

World Central Kitchen’s impact:

  • Constructed a community dining area where the community can safely cook and feed the children attending the adjacent school.
  • Built and help to maintain a community garden that feeds 200 students daily and trained community members on how to use ingredients from the garden in daily cooking
  • Trained 4 school cooks on clean cook stoves and financed salaries during the period where the school was reaching financial sustainability
  • Held a community-wide Sink To Stove training to support safe and healthy cooking at home
  • Constructed a chicken farm with 27 chickens to provide sustainable nutritional and economic support

Project Results

  • 165 students now have the ability to attend school thanks to the provision of a daily meal
  • Enrollment rates have increased by 135%

By empowering community members and providing them with a new place to cook, eat and grow their own food, World Central Kitchen has created both a local and sustainable solution to hunger.
