About

MealFlour is a social enterprise that trains communities with high rates of chronic malnutrition how to build and maintain environmentally sustainable mealworm farms, and how to turn mealworms into a protein-rich powder. The participants in the trainings can incorporate the protein powder into existing local staple foods or sell the powder in local markets and bakeries for an additional source of income. MealFlour currently works in Guatemala, which has the world’s fourth highest rate of chronic malnutrition.
