Feed the Future Summary Guide


Today, more than one billion people— nearly one-sixth of the world’s population—suffer from chronic hunger. This crisis has devastating and far-reaching effects. Each year, more than 3.5 million children die from undernutrition. Hunger robs the poor of a healthy and productive life and stunts the mental and physical development of the next generation. Undernutrition costs developing countries up to 3 percent of their annual gross domestic product and places individuals at risk of losing more than 0 percent of their lifetime earning potential.

Reducing chronic hunger is essential to building a foundation for development investments in health, education, and economic growth. Learn more about how we’re addressing these challenges in the Feed the Future summary (pdf, 884kb).
