A Peace Corps Volunteer trained more than 30 girls in Guatemala to create vegetable gardens in recycled car and truck tires, and held a cooking and nutrition class with the food they generated.
Mamón; a really delicious fruit in Panama. It looks like a lime but then you break it open and there is this pinkish fruit inside. Yum :)

The Children’s Garden is an essential project as it will provide children with the opportunity to learn about nutrition while encouraging them to grow their own crops of which they can take home to their families.
Many children and adults currently do not have access to fresh fruits and vegetables within the village. Therefore, a significant portion of the population tends to be undernourished due to the lack of diversity and essential nutrients in their diets.

Cassie helps prepare pap by violently stirring it until it is thick in consistency, while a woman supervises the effort. Pap is a flavorless corn-based food popular in South Africa.
I ate fried Mopane (Mopani) worms for the first time here in South Africa. Well, they are not actually worms, they’re caterpillars. So, I guess you can say that I’m officially an insectivore now. Mopani worms are a local delicacy especially for the Shangaan people. Sometimes they are fried and other times they are boiled. People eat them here like potato chips or popcorn. Eventually, if these creatures are allowed to grow, they will become a beautiful Emperor moth.
