In the urban slums of Jakarta, kids under five years old are getting enriched, nutritious food from an unusual place: healthy food carts. KeBAL (My Child's Café) has grown from a small nutrition project piloted by Mercy Corps in 2009 to a sustainable, scalable social enterprise.

Now in partnership with DSM, the global leader in micronutrients, and the Rabobank Foundation, KeBAL aims to meet the nutritional needs of hundreds of thousands of youngsters on a daily basis in Jakarta within five years, while providing jobs and working with local farmers.
