Partnering For Progress
Ending hunger and poverty isn’t something we can do alone, which is why the U.S. Government has been working with partners to bring new ideas, technologies and services to bear to advance global food security.

Since the start of Feed the Future, our broad array of partners have brought their expertise and resources together to help build healthy families, thriving communities and global stability that will last well into the future. These efforts have even benefitted Americans back home.

Check out the stories below to learn more about how we partner to create lasting impact in the communities and countries in which we work.
