Join the Fight

Climate change, conflict and a pandemic are driving the need for our foods to levels we have never seen before. Three million children will die from malnutrition this year and 100% of these deaths are preventable. Let’s work together to end this crisis.

What is RUTF

RUTF (Ready-to-Use Therapeutic Food) is a life-saving peanut-based paste made from milk powder, peanuts, soy, oil, sugar, and vitamins and minerals. We call this miracle food Plumpy’Nut. It does not require water or refrigeration, can be administered at home and can rehabilitate a child under five in just eight weeks.


We’ve saved 18 million lives in 62 countries. We’re just getting started.
