Keurig Green Mountain


Keurig Green Mountain, Inc. believes in using the power of business to make the world a better place. Together, we are working to address Los Meses Flacos, the months of severe food insecurity that affect many coffee farmers and their children before the harvest.

Through this partnership, Save the Children is reaching approximately 20,000 families in coffee-producing countries, helping families adopt practices and take advantage of other opportunities to diversify their income and reduce hunger.

Helping Families Provide for their Children

Children are more likely to be healthy and educated when their families are not worried about where the next meal will come from. But in many rural parts of the world, families urgently need support to grow or buy a variety of foods for their children to thrive. To effectively fight child hunger and improve children's wellbeing, nutritious food must be made available to families, and families must have the means to buy it.

To help parents provide for their children's basic nutritional needs, Save the Children's hunger and livelihoods programs focus on improving the food supply, farming practices and finances of families in need.

  • We give families basic food staples following a natural disaster or emergency.
  • We teach parents about the importance of providing their child with the right variety of foods to prevent malnutrition.
  • We train small-scale farmers on how to prevent the loss of crops or livestock to drought, floods or disease.
  • We guide family farmers on how to grow more nutritious foods, in larger quantities to eat or to sell, and how to raise animals for meat, eggs or milk.
  • We help families access basic financial products like savings or insurance so they can persevere through challenging times, or start and expand their small businesses.
  • And, we give youth the skills to succeed — like building their savings, teaching them how to manage money, and get a job and/or build a business.

In 2012, Save the Children's livelihoods programs reached more than 7 million children and adults, thanks to the many families, government officials and community volunteers who contribute their time and support to help these children thrive.
