We commend the U.S. Congress for moving toward passage of the Global Food Security Act (S. 1252).

You hear about the partisanship and inaction in Congress. This bill is an example of how diverse interests can come together to support food security and poverty alleviation in Sub-Saharan Africa, Asia, and Latin America. Through our investments overseas, we are helping smallholder farmers in the world’s poorest regions improve yields and pull their families out of poverty.
