Building Stronger Policies to Fight Global Hunger
EAST LANSING, Mich. --- As part of Feed The Future, the federal government’s global hunger and food security initiative, Michigan State University will use a $10 million grant from the U.S. Agency for International Development to strengthen developing countries’ abilities to fight hunger through improved food policy. The new Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Food Security Policy will be led by MSU's Food Security Group, partnering with the International Food Policy Research Institute, in Washington, D.C., and the University of Pretoria, in South Africa. An additional $15 million of grant funding could be made available for more intensive country-level programs throughout the next five years.
