Food Security and Nutrition
The right to food is one of the most basic human rights.
Too many of our neighbors don't have the resources they need to realize this right, though. Too many parents are struggling to put food on the table.

And too many people don't know where their next meal will come from.
You know that it doesn't have to be this way. That's why you’re teaming up with communities all around the globe to improve food security. You’re helping families grow or buy more food--and more nutritious food. You’re working with parents to learn nutrient-rich recipes using local ingredients. You’re helping farmers improve their harvests and families to start vegetable gardens. And you’re making sure people can earn a living and afford to buy the food they need.
Join the movement. Change the equation.
