Canning Veggies as Humanitarian Relief

Posted in: 

Anera is employing students in our vocational education classes on cooking to can and freeze vegetables for families in Lebanon who are struggling to put food on the table in these difficult times. We buy the fresh produce from farmers in the Bekaa Valley and immediately preserve them. Then we take them to locations throughout the country for distribution.

This project is a win-win-win: the students learn skills and earn wages using them, the farmers sell their produce, and food-insecure families get nutritious food to eat.

Thank you UNICEF for funding this important work!
