Eliminating
Food Insecurity
in Cabarete

In Cabarete 31% of homes suffer from severe food insecurity. While tourism employs over 65% of the local population, it often pays a very low salary of about $200/month - about half of what the United Nations estimates a decent survival level in the Dominican Republic.
