Urge Congress to pass Global Food Security Act of 2015

Global Food Security
This bipartisan legislation authorizes a successful approach to food security and agricultural development, currently utilized by Feed the Future, and ensures that we can build upon this program's successes to fight hunger and malnutrition and strengthen agricultural production. This whole-of-government initiative, led by USAID, leverages resources provided by non-governmental and faith-based organizations, private enterprises, universities, and foreign governments to maximize efficiency and impact. Through this initiative we can help alleviate global poverty, hunger, and malnutrition in developing countries and enhance food security. In turn, we can strengthen communities, create stronger trading partners, and build a more stable and secure world.
