We provide vegetable seeds and support so women can grow food! Women farmers produce more than half the developing world's food, yet own less than 2% of land and receive little support - such as seeds, tools, and knowledge. We join with women's gardening efforts in the most impoverished countries worldwide including Madagascar, Guatemala, Liberia, and Kenya. By providing top-quality vegetable seeds and locally-driven support, women can access a path to empowerment, income, and nutrition.

Nearly one-third of children in the U.S. are obese, and another third are hungry. Children consume half - and often more - of their daily calories while at school. Schools are struggling to transition from highly-processed food products to scratch-cooked meals made from healthy, whole foods. This project will help Chef Ann Foundation provide the tools, training, resources and funding that enable schools nationwide to cook and serve real food that nourishes children's bodies, minds and futures.
Civil war, drought, and economic instability have led to famine conditions in South Sudan, where nearly 6.5 million people-more than half of the population-face extreme food shortages.

This fund will provide emergency funding to international and locally driven relief efforts, providing food, medicine, and other essential supplies to address regional food crises.
