Outreach

Once described as an “unknown” and “underutilized” crop, breadfruit is making a comeback in home kitchens, restaurants, and the international food industry. Educating our worldwide community about the benefits of breadfruit is vital to increase interest and awareness to bring breadfruit from the tree to our tables. The Breadfruit Institute and partners have held workshops, lectures, tree plantings, and cooking demonstrations to educate attendees how to properly harvest, handle, and prepare breadfruit. We continue to develop and publish free resources that teach correct planting and harvesting techniques, provide information about the nutrition and seasonality of different varieties, create curriculum for teachers to teach students about breadfruit, and much more. Outreach and education are key to expanding our international breadfruit community from home gardeners to small-holder farmers to large-scale agriculture.
