Solar Ovens Promote Wellness
Cooking with a solar oven enables a family to eat more nutritious, safe, and flavorful food…but the benefits don’t stop there.
(Play the video to hear what Minorca Says about us)
Cooking over a fire exposes the cook and others to the risks of smoke inhalation. Solar ovens cook healthy food and pasteurize water using clean and free energy.
Sunlight is free! Cooking fuel costs money. Families can direct their savings to pressing needs. Some even use the oven to produce supplemental income!
Burning wood or charcoal for cooking fires creates environmental problems in a community. A free, clean fuel source has many ripple effects.
Our faith is rooted in the story of Jesus, whose example of caring we follow. We seek to deepen awareness of and relationship with Jesus Christ.
Do all the good you can, By all the means you can, In all the ways you can, In all the places you can, At all the times you can, To all the people you can, As long as ever you can.
Modern Paraphrase of John Wesley, founder of Methodism
BUILD SOLAR OVENS
Each solar oven costs about $150 to manufacture and deliver to a trained solar cook. Families receive them for a small donation. Because volunteers contribute their labor, our per-unit costs are very low.
