USAID/B. Deutsch

We know global hunger is solvable and that it will take collective action to end it. By working with our partners in support of country-led priorities, Feed the Future is seeing great success in advancing global food security from farms to markets to tables.

On Thursday, July 25, a special event hosted by the Co-Chairs of the Senate Hunger Caucus, The Chicago Council on Global Affairs, and USAID through Feed the Future celebrated these advancements in global food security as highlighted in the new Feed the Future Progress Report and during President Obama's recent visit to Africa.

During the event, U.S. Government representatives and global food security experts discussed successes, challenges, and the need for continued engagement to end hunger, poverty and undernutrition.
