Feed the Future
This project is part of the U.S. Government's global hunger and food security initiative.


Food availability, access, utilization and stability are the four pillars of food security. Strengthening these pillars and thus mitigating poverty and hunger, is an ongoing global challenge and the focus of much of USAID’s work.
