Wheat: Essential Tool in Fight Against Global Hunger

U.S. wheat is one of America’s strongest tools in the fight against drought, famine and conflict around the world, helping us respond to humanitarian and global security threats. We know food-insecure nations are prone to civil unrest that can impact us at home.

That’s why U.S. wheat’s contribution to food aid programs like Food for Progress is critical, helping nourish and support peaceful development for millions of global citizens. For generations, American farmers have battled global food insecurity by producing enough wheat to meet global demand and still have a surplus, despite pests, diseases and climate challenges.
