821 million people are undernourished worldwide. 1 in 9 humans on Earth struggle to meet their basic dietary needs.
They are often low-income individuals who live in food desert communities, where the nearest source of affordable and healthy food is more than a mile away in cities or 10 miles in rural areas.
This forces people to eat highly processed under nutritious food that contributes to chronic health issues.
AlloHealth is committed to addressing the worldwide pandemic of undernutrition with unique hydroponic farming kits that make it easy to start an indoor garden. By reaching a global population, our kits and app can revolutionize agriculture and provide sustainable nutrition at an affordable cost to millions of low-income individuals worldwide.
AlloHealth was founded in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. As part of MIT's Beat the Pandemic Challenge, AlloHealth was formed to combat food insecurity and the poor health associated with it. After intense competition, AlloHealth was selected as a winner of the competition and encouraged to continue on its mission to end food insecurity.
