A Strategy to End Hunger

More than 800 million people across the world go to bed hungry each night. As the global population grows, so do the opportunities and challenges associated with ending global hunger. Feed the Future is working to combat global hunger through partnership and innovation.

As the U.S. Government’s global hunger and food security initiative, we’re addressing the root causes of poverty, hunger and malnutrition and transforming lives.

To achieve this, Feed the Future works hand-in-hand with partner countries to develop their agriculture sectors and break the vicious cycle of poverty and hunger. We are helping people feed themselves and creating important opportunities for a new generation of young people, while building a more stable world.
