Mission Statement

To save the lives of severely malnourished children in developing countries with an innovative and very effective fortified peanut butter product, provided to the child in his or her own home.

Description

Meds & Food for Kids (MFK) was founded in 2004 by Patricia B. Wolff, MD, a pediatrician in private practice in St. Louis, Missouri and an Associate Clinical Professor of Pediatrics at Washington University School of Medicine. MFK works to combat childhood malnutrition and related diseases in Haiti, the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. We use an exciting new peanut-based feeding approach called Ready-to-Use Therapeutic Food (RUTF). RUTF brings malnourished children back from the brink of death.
