Local Food Goes Farther
What if you could help end hunger in the United States simply by standing up and being counted? Sign the petition to build support for local food, like the kind found at your neighborhood farmer’s market, and you will be doing exactly that. Local food is healthier, encourages environmental stewardship, and–perhaps most important to ending hunger–creates jobs. Governmental support for local-food-system programs has the potential to create thousands of jobs in communities around the country, thereby boosting the grocery budgets in a lot of food insecure households.

Support Sustainable Agriculture in Africa

Please watch this video to see how our partner Millennium Promise is working to find sustainable solutions in Africa.
