Responding to a Global Hunger Crisis
795 million people worldwide face chronic hunger. Countries like South Sudan, Nigeria, and Yemen continue to be mired in violence, forcing people to abandon their fields and flee their homes. The Horn of Africa is coping with severe drought, leaving families unable to grow the food they need.
Join Us to Prevent - and End - Global Hunger
Ending global hunger means responding to immediate hunger emergencies while also addressing the root causes of poverty. The international food security programs in the Farm Bill do just that by providing emergency food when disasters strike, helping communities grow more of the food they need, conserving natural resources and transforming landscapes, and supporting literacy and education through school lunches.
Tell Congress that international food security programs in the Farm Bill and other support to fight global hunger is critical and that the US must be a global leader in this endeavor.
Your voice is needed to continue these efforts. Help ensure that CRS and other humanitarian agencies can respond to crises and work to create the sustainable infrastructure that can prevent global hunger long into the future.
