Sustainable Food Systems Project (SUSTFARM+)

Project Overview

The Sustainable Food Systems Project (SUSTFARM+) is a comprehensive initiative with the main objective of improving food and nutrition security in Kakamega, Siaya, and Bungoma counties in Kenya. The project recognizes the critical role of sustainable food systems in ensuring long-term access to safe, nutritious, and culturally appropriate food for all community members.
