Today almost 900 million people are going hungry—most of them women and girls. This is happening because of deep injustice in the global food system. We're calling for a dramatic change in the way we produce and share food so that everyone has enough to eat always.
GROW is a vision for a brighter future. It starts here and it starts with all of us. Join us.
Join others around the world who have signed on to the GROW campaign. We'll send you occasional e-mail messages with quick actions you can take to fix the broken food system - so that everyone has enough to eat always.
