Take Hunger off the Menu on World Food Day
Heifer + World Food Day
Eat at participating restaurants on Tuesday, October 16, and a percentage of your meal will help eliminate hunger and poverty.
See participating restaurants below.
At Heifer International, we've supported family farming since 1944. We are committed to using integrated agriculture to help communities become self-sustaining. Smallholder farmers form the backbone of our society. There are more than 570 million farms in the world, and 87 percent of them are family owned. Many of them live in a state of abject poverty. When we all work together, we can make sure no family ever has to suffer from a life of desperation or hunger again.

FOOD SECURITY AND NUTRITION
We build food security by working with small-scale farmers to increase availability, utilization, and accessibility of food. We accomplish this by deploying livestock, seeds and trainings in sustainable crop production and animal management practices, and by working with communities to increase diversity and intake of foods for improved nutrition.Our programs accomplish this by:
- Improving maternal and infant health
- Increasing dietary diversity and income
- Enabling environment for better nutrition
