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.
