Food Security & Nutrition
Global hunger is on the rise, and millions of people world-wide are struggling with food insecurity.
Right now, too many parents are struggling to put food on the table. Too many students are trying to learn while ignoring their empty bellies. Too many children aren't getting the nutrition they need to grow up healthy and strong. And too many people don't know where their next meal will come from.
We know that it doesn't have to be this way. That's why we’re teaming up with communities all around the globe to combat food insecurity. We’re working with families to grow or buy more food--and more nutritious food. We’re working with parents to learn nutrient-rich recipes using local ingredients. We’re helping farmers improve their harvests using techniques that can withstand the effects of climate change. And we’re making sure people can earn a living and afford to buy the food they need.
Together, we can change the equation.
