Global Food Fund

The world is on the brink of one of the most devastating food security crises in generations due to the effects of climate change and COVID-19. The war in Ukraine is exacerbating this crisis, causing global food, fuel, and fertilizer shortages and rising food prices around the world. Ukraine supplies a great deal of the world’s corn, wheat, and sunflower seeds for cooking oil. Russia continues to destroy Ukrainian farmland, warehouses, roads, and equipment. After months of blockading Ukraine's ports, Russia must live up to the commitments it made to allow Ukrainian agricultural goods to reach the world.

Meanwhile, the worst drought in four decades is imperiling lives across the Horn of Africa, a region that is also dependent on Ukrainian exports.

And the problem is only escalating. has partnered with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) to direct funds to organizations that are helping to address the global food security crisis by providing immediate humanitarian relief to the most vulnerable populations.
