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.

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.
