Food for Thought is a Turks and Caicos Islands charity that focuses on children’s nutrition. We are based in Providenciales but distribute food throughout our islands. We founded Food for Thought at the beginning of 2016, having become aware that an unacceptable number of children are going to school without having eaten breakfast. Malnutrition has an enormous effect on physical and mental development, and the children’s ability to concentrate and learn.
We were raised in Turks & Caicos and would like to make sure the next generation is given the best possible chance to lead happy, healthy and prosperous lives.
