Our global food system is broken. But together we have the power to fix it. We’re a community of people who #WillFightForFood. Are you ready to join us?
How can we take action against hunger?
If you’ve eaten, shopped, dined out, cooked, or farmed in the last few years, you might have gotten a glimpse of what’s wrong with our food system:
- Billions of tons of food go to waste while about one in nine people on Earth goes hungry.
- Staple crops, from corn and wheat to avocados, are threatened by climate change.
- The people who produce our food—family farmers and workers—face poverty and unjust working conditions, while big companies see huge profits.
- Critical food aid has been cut to places like war-torn Syria.
It’s enough to make you lose your appetite.
But there is something we can do. People struggling with hunger don’t exist in a vacuum. Harvests don’t fail in isolation. We’re all interconnected—through the food we eat, the products we buy, and the issues we care about it. People like us can make change, but only if we make our voices heard.
Are you ready to speak up? It’s time. Together, we #WillFightForFood. Here’s how to join us.
Feed the Future is helping millions of farmers to lift themselves out of poverty. By working with small-scale farmers to claim their rights, fight hunger, and adapt to climate change, Feed the Future is making a difference. Tell Congress: Make Feed the Future permanent.Sign the petition
