Feed the Future
Ending global hunger is one the greatest challenges and opportunities of our time. Feed the Future is working to solve it through partnerships and innovation. Their model was born from an understanding that business as usual was not going to create the sustainable, long-term change needed to end chronic hunger and poverty. So, they forged a new approach.
Feed the Future brings together partners from across various sectors and the U.S. Government to use each of their unique skills and insights in a targeted, coordinated way to help countries that are ripe for transformation change the way their food systems work.
As the U.S. Government’s global hunger and food security initiative, Feed the Future works to give families and communities in some of the world’s poorest countries the freedom and opportunity to lift themselves out of food insecurity and malnutrition. By equipping people with the knowledge and tools they need to feed themselves, they are addressing the root causes of poverty and hunger, helping people end their reliance on aid, and creating important opportunities for a new generation of young people—all while building a more stable world.
WHERE THEY WORK & WHY
Feed the Future invests in countries that are committed to improving their own food security and nutrition. Their selection is based on:
