According to the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization, there are currently more than 795 million people, or 1 in 9, around the world suffering from chronic hunger, including 159 million children who are chronically malnourished. The United States has long been a leader in supporting development initiatives that help people move themselves out of poverty.

Legislation being considered in Congress will give the U.S. government the tools and resources it needs to better combat chronic hunger and malnutrition as well as to expand and better coordinate U.S. investments in improving global food security.
