Food, Environment & Health
Through Karen’s Soy Nutrition Program (KSNP) at the Guatemala City waste dumpsite, Plenty works with local residents to increase the quality nutrient intake of undernourished children, improve parents’ understanding and ability to address family nutrition needs, and expand local employment opportunities.
Who We Are
Plenty is a not-for-profit organization that was created to help protect and share the world’s abundance and knowledge for the benefit of all. Plenty supports economic self-sufficiency, cultural integrity and environmental responsibility in partnership with community groups and organizations in Central America, the U.S., the Caribbean, and Africa.
Since 1974, hundreds of Plenty volunteers have worked in 19 countries on projects such as organic agriculture, food production and nutrition, cooperative businesses, solar energy, communications, health care, disaster relief, Fair Trade crafts marketing, and ecotourism.
