ARK FEED BACK is a vegetable exchange for the whole community. 

It inspires families to farm their own food from their backyards, and to produce excess that's shared with their neighbors during exchanges or sold to nearby villages or town.

To date, 77 communities 
across 8 provinces graduated–
19,000+ families are food secure,
138,000+ lives are transformed.

See the proof

In our 9th wave, 10 communities piloted the PlayBook, a DIY guide to implement Feed Back.

They proved that the PlayBook, plus support from Guides (Feed Back graduates), gets families food secure, healthy, able to save for their kids' school, and earning new income.

A real GAMECHANGER!

You can now share Feed Back to more communities while keeping ARK’s operating team lean & mighty with a low impact investment.

Mission: LISTEN, DRAW, CO-CREATE

with 3 communities

Cagawasan
inspired the most number of families to join exchanges and lend a hand

What are their winning diskartes or strategies? 

Poblacion 
motivated semi-urban families to add backyard gardening and composting into their lifestyles

How did they make it easy and fun? 

Cuaming Island 
overcame isolation and limited resources to get fisher families to farm

How do we turn challenges into opportunities and assets? 

Together with the community leaders and families, we will draw out what they loved, what was easy and useful, and what we need to change.
