SPOON is the first and only organization dedicated to transforming nutrition and feeding for children living without their families caring for them. These children, many living in orphanages and many with disabilities, suffer from alarmingly high rates of malnutrition and are rarely served by international and local efforts.
SPOON has worked in 13 countries since 2008, using tools specifically designed to accommodate the unique nutrition and feeding needs of children impacted by disability and/or institutional care. Our tools have been field-tested with clear and compelling results, drastically reducing malnutrition and life-threatening feeding practices. SPOON’s impact spans Asia, Africa, Eastern Europe and the United States.
