The history of the Food for Everyone Foundation

For the past 40 years and continuing into the foreseeable future, many thousands of hours of research, clinical and field experimentation have been conducted in 75 research, teaching, and demonstration projects in more than 20 countries throughout the world - including conditions from sea level to 7,300' elevation, the equator to 54 degrees North latitude and 25 degrees South latitude. Soil types encountered have included virtually everything from straight sand to hard clay; PH has ranged from 4.4 to 8.9; and rainfall has varied from 8" to 140". This base of experience gives the foundation a unique ability to broadly replicate past successes into many more countries and locations.

Historically, approximately 3,000 students have been trained in 75 projects, with limited materials and meager funding.

Previous projects have been in Russian commonwealth countries, Latvia, four nations in Africa, Mexico, Honduras, Trinidad & Tobago, FIJI, Tonga, Okinawa, Papua New Guinea, New Britain, Canada, and the USA, plus others. The foundation's goal is to expand the program worldwide.
