Interfaith Community Responses and Recommendations on the Global Hunger and Food Security Initiative Consultation Document

In response to U.S. plans for a Global Hunger and Food Security Initiative, diverse faith communities concerned about the role of development in lifting people around the globe out of poverty encouraged the administration to focus on small-producers. Investments in small-producers in particular drive broadly-shared economic development and increase the food supply. With greater prosperity, the consequent higher effective demand for industrial and other goods would induce dynamics that would be a significant source of economic growth.
