Nutritious Meals


It is not hard to convince anyone that healthy, nutritious meals are important, especially for growing kids. Rice Bowls understands this, but also knows that diet looks different in each country they work in. In India, rice is a staple, in Honduras, it’s avocados, beans, and tortillas, In Ethiopia, Injera. Rice Bowls works with pediatric nutrition experts to come up with meal guidelines for each home in every country. Homes then submit a set menu for the month, and you better believe they stick to it. Sometimes Rice Bowls drops in for a surprise visit to make sure the homes are cooking what is on the menu, the pantry is stocked with ingredients for upcoming meals, and the kids are eating well.

Home Productivity


In most cases, a children home’s food budget accounts for around 74% of the total home's budget. By providing the funds for the food, homes are able to focus on important things that otherwise might be out of the budget.

Economic Development

Rather than sending food into the homes Rice Bowls works with, they simply sends a check designated for the food. The home then takes that money and goes to the road side market for fresh fruits and veggies grown by the farmer around the corner, to the neighborhood butcher for fresh meat, and to the local grain mill, for fresh flour or ground maze. This not only pours into the local economy, helping change the cycle of poverty, but also allows them to buy food the kids are sure to love.
