IDRF food security and nutrition programs provide access to and education about improved, sustainable food access in order to address malnutrition and its impacts.
How do we do it?
Why support IDRF’s Food & Nutrition programs?
Approximately 805 million people do not have enough food to eat. That’s approximately one in nine people in this world. The vast majority of those that live in hunger reside in developing countries.
Global demand for food production is estimated to double by Soil erosion, lack of water, inefficient use of current agriculture land, and the conversion of forests into farm land, is resulting in lack of sufficient food stores, and the depletion of forests and natural resources. As resources become scarce, competition for access increases. This can result in mass internal displacement, conflict, and instability.
Activities that create opportunities to enhance food security and promote smart food choices can reduce poverty in the long term and eliminate the fear of not knowing where your next meal is coming from.
