Lindsay Coates, executive vice president at InterAction
“…[B]y sharing U.S. expertise in agriculture development and working in partnership with smallholder farmers we can continue the progress already being made in tackling global hunger. … [T]he recent approval of the Global Food Security Act (H.R. 1567/S. 1252) by voice vote in the U.S. Senate and by an overwhelming majority in the House of Representatives is a clear signal of the commitment by congressional leadership to the fight against global hunger, malnutrition, and extreme poverty. … We look forward to continuing to work with members of Congress and key partners in the public, private, and nonprofit sectors to enact the Global Food Security Act before the end of this Congress” (4/21).
