Take a Look: Feed the Future in Pictures

We’re excited to announce the winners of our latest Feed the Future photo contest! Read on to find out which photos won and how to view all the entries.

Our partners entered more than 120 inspiring photos of Feed the Future and other U.S. Government food security activities. 

From U.S. Government agencies to civil society and university partners, the photos capture what Feed the Future is all about: empowering women, helping smallholder farmers, improving nutrition, investing in research and innovation, generating opportunities for economic growth and trade, and reducing global hunger and poverty.

Working together under Feed the Future, we’re seeing real progress in the fight against global hunger, poverty and undernutrition. These pictures give you a glimpse into that progress and the lives that are being changed.

A panel of judges from across Feed the Future’s partner agencies voted on their favorites. Here are their top picks (our contest winners). Click each photo for more information.
