"I'm hungry" was one of the first phrases we heard in Haitian Creole from the local children. The Mother Angela Kitchen feeds nearly 100 children one substantial meal each day, Monday through Friday.
We employ two Haitian women to prepare the food and the children and teens are responsible for serving and clean-up. The children and teens are given a hot meal of rice and beans, spaghetti, corn meal (polenta), a special sweet soup and filtered water. This program offers much-needed nutrition to children who would otherwise go hungry. Often, this meal is the only nourishment available to the children in a day.
