The U.S. Economic Relationship with the Western Hemisphere

The Feed the Future initiative is designed to improve the food security of the poorest communities in the region. The Feed the Future strategy in Guatemala, Honduras, and Haiti supports country-driven approaches to address the root causes of hunger and poverty and forge long-term solutions to chronic food insecurity and undernutrition. 

Feed the Future assisted 12,375 small-scale Guatemalan producers in the production and marketing of horticulture, coffee products, timber and non-timber forest products, and sustainable tourism services contributing to $17.8 million in sales and 5,651 jobs. In Haiti, rice yields increased by 64 percent, corn yields by338 percent, bean crops by 97 percent, and plantain outputs by 21 percent for beneficiary farmers participating in U.S. Government programs.
