PHOTOBLOG: From mud cakes to earthquakes, Haiti faces rising malnutrition | Analysis & Opinion | Reuters: "Hungry quake survivors – particularly pregnant women and children – may have little choice but to turn to mud cakes to stave off hunger and boost their calcium intake.

This is rough. They have some very big long term problems. If the world economy collapses like it is threatening to do they'll be in even bigger trouble, because few others will be able to help them.
Food forests and permaculture make more and more sense. I hardly expect you to grow all your own food but even just some food would help carry you through a major disaster.
