Plant Breadfruit Trees
to Help Alleviate Hunger and Provide
Food Security in the Tropics
More than 1 billion people are hungry and every 4 seconds someone dies of hunger. Many tropical countries with serious hunger problems have ecological conditions suitable for cultivating breadfruit.
The trees are easy to grow, begin bearing in three to five years, and produce bountiful yields of nutritious starchy fruit for decades. Tree plantings help the environment by improving soil conditions and watersheds, and by reducing CO2.
The Breadfruit Institute has established partnerships to make breadfruit varieties widely available. Most varieties are seedless so we developed a method to produce high quality, vigorous plantlets that can be shipped globally and are ready for planting in the ground in a few months.
You can play a vital part in getting these trees to farmers and families by supporting the Breadfruit Institute and its Hunger Initiative to support food security and enhance sustainable agriculture and agroforestry.
Contributions are tax-deductible to the extent provided by law.
Thank you for making a difference!
