Calling on Congress, U.S. Government to Make Food Security a Higher Priority

InterAction's Food Security Pledge: $1 Billion of Potential Leverage

Last fall InterAction pledged that its member NGOs would spend more than $1 billion (InterAction has since increased the pledge to $1.5 billion) in private resources on food security, agriculture and nutrition work over the next three years.  It may come as a surprise that U.S.-based NGOs have this amount of private resources to commit to ensuring more families worldwide have the food they need. Thanks to support from the individuals, foundations and corporations who believe in their cause and approach, they do.
