Working for a World Where There is Nourishing Food for All
It has never been more urgent to build a world where families have the basic dignity of nourishing food to eat. The pandemic has had an unprecedented impact on food security. Climate change is leading to increased crop failures. And conflict has become a key driver of hunger. But Feed the Future is committed to working for a world where hunger is a distant memory. 

This September, the United Nations held the inaugural Food Systems Summit with the goal of driving bold progress on the Sustainable Development Goals through transforming food systems by 2030. President Biden pledged $10 billion to transform food systems, both at home and abroad. 

As USAID Administrator Samantha Power and U.S. Department of Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said in a joint statement, this is only possible when we work together. And Feed the Future is leading the way. Of the $10 billion, Administrator Power announced a plan to invest $5 billion over five years in Feed the Future and expand its reach to additional countries.

Check out these stories below to read how Feed the Future is working at every step of the food system to end global hunger, poverty, and malnutrition.
