Secretary Clinton Supports Local Food Production

Can food be grown in the developing world where hungry people can actually get it, at prices they can afford? For all of us at AJWS, the answer is, of course, a resounding YES. Even though poverty and difficult growing conditions plague the places that need new food production most, including sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia, local food production remains the only sustainable solution to global hunger. Fortunately, Secretary Clinton agrees. In an article in today’s New York Times about population growth and global hunger, Secretary Clinton’s spokesperson, Philip J. Crowley, reported:

“Mrs. Clinton often calls agriculture aid a critical issue, saying the administration supports domestic efforts in developing nations and improvements in production by small farmers, particularly women. We are trying to shift away from emergency aid toward agricultural development.”

Read the entire article and check out what AJWS’s NGO partners are doing on the ground to maximize local food production and become less reliant on emergency aid. You can help effect change, too! Sign AJWS’s petition to urge Secretary Clinton to take the U.S. food security initiative one step further by recognizing food as a human right.

    On this healthcare reform, why dont we let the people in Washington DC making all of the decision, pay for the ones that dont have the opportunity to have health care. They seem to have all of the money and answers. Put their money where their mouth is.
