Global Food Exchange Responds to Critical Need in the Philippines

Denver, Colorado (PRWEB) November 13, 2013

Typhoon Haiyan has ravaged the Philippines and desperation is growing. Food, water and other critical supplies are scarce and in some places, simply nowhere to be found. Entire families have been lost and medical care is nearly nonexistent. This small island nation sits on the western rim of the Pacific Ocean, one of the most active areas for typhoons, however no one individual or entity could be adequately prepared for a storm of this magnitude. Thousands have been lost, millions have been affected, and it will take years to rebuild.

One of the companies actively implementing a solution to crisis relief is Global Food Exchange (GFE). GFE has a vision for resolving a global inefficiency that costs millions of lives through the provision of nutritious food and clean water to agencies in a highly efficient and prepared manner. GFE fully understands the importance and role of clean water and nutrition in stabilizing victims and communities following a natural disaster. With that in mind, GFE food is the highest quality nutrition available on the market and is non-GMO, MSG-free, vegetarian with 23 unique entrees.

Now fully functioning and eager to start making an impact, the GFE currently has eight (8) 40 ft container Food Relief Vaults (FRVs) ready at its storage facility in Lindon, Utah. A Food Relief Vault or FRV is an ISO shipping container filled with complete meals and everything needed for preparation. The Food Relief Vault is much like it sounds, a secure physical storage container held in a secure location with logistics to ship specially packaged food for rapid deployment into the world’s most susceptible geographic regions.

Global Food Exchange is a benevolently-minded free market solution that is only as strong as its participants. In order to build out a prepared global network reaching more and more following future disasters, external partners and participants are needed. Currently, GFE is actively working with affiliated organizations who are heroically providing relief in the Philippines and abroad. Together with the international community, GFE would be able to establish a prepared global network ready for rapid response, which would support the efforts of aid organizations to save more lives in the Philippines and beyond.
