Canada, Guatemala Partner on Zero Hunger Pact

Published on 20 March 2014

Canada has donated CAN$2 million to Guatemala to fund the manufacturing of “Mi Comidita,” (my little food) a powdered, fortified food supplement designed specifically for children in the first 1,000 days of life (0-2 years), a “window of opportunity” critical to their long-term well-being. The Zero Hunger Pact, spearheaded by the Guatemalan government, WFP, and the Canadian Embassy in Guatemala, is now active in the department of Totonicapán to help 3,000 pregnant and nursing mothers and their children.
