Be a Future Maker
Transform a Million Lives 


Hunger is a big & chronic problem

2 billion people around the world go hungry each year — many for an entire season.​ 

The most food insecure are small farmers & fisherfolk

the bedrock of food supply across the developing world.

The pandemic made this crisis urgent

In the Philippines, 59 million Filipinos were food insecure before the pandemic.

During the pandemic, families went days without food and rotated among themselves who was going to eat and who was going to skip.

The consequences are irreversible

Hunger when experienced under the age of 5 makes kids stunted and challenged in school. It makes them vulnerable to chronic diseases when they grow up. It limits dreams and the possibilities for change for a whole generation.

With Feed Back, families solve hunger in 5 weeks

Source food in their backyards

Generate excess food to supply their village

Have new, sustainable income

Are happy and invest in each other


We are securing 11,150 families and transforming 46,661 lives.

Since June 2020, Feed Back is in





graduated communities



Rural partners secured 82% of at risk families and exchanged 416 tons (377,270  kilos) of vegetables,

worth $203k once a week in just 8-12 weeks. This is already 1.3x return what the communities’ invest.

In those 8 weeks, families bring home 5.8 kilos of food, over 20 kinds of vegetable. This along with the food secured directly from their backyards creates a total meal value of $1,387,008*, or a 5x total return* for ARK and our community partners.

Graduated communities continue to be food secure and grow their ventures

Story from Traciano

One year after graduating from Feed Back, 94% of participants still harvest from their backyards. Not only have they NOT gone hungry for a second year in a row, nearly two-thirds now get 25% of their annual income from their vegetable ventures.
