‘Collective Action’ Needed To End Hunger Worldwide

Medium: 5 Lessons Learned While Leading Food for Peace
Dina Esposito, director of USAID’s Office of Food for Peace

“…As my time with Food for Peace comes to a close, I wanted to share five lessons I have learned: … Lesson 1: Conflict has returned as the predominant force shaping humanitarian assistance. … Lesson 2: The nutritional profile of food we offer and the way we program it must continue to evolve. … Lesson 3: Big results do not always equal sustainable results. … Lesson 4: Resilience is the core concept that links Food for Peace programs to the larger Feed the Future Global Food Security Agenda. … Lesson 5: #FoodforPeace and its partners are better placed than ever to advance [Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 2] — Ending Hunger. … Together, we bring help and hope to the most food-insecure places in the world. Ending hunger requires collective action by public and private organizations, as well as individuals. As challenging as these times are, we are better placed than ever to make a difference” (12/9).
