Global Nutrition Investments Could Help End Need For Foreign Aid, Eleanor Crook Foundation Head Says
AgriPulse: Opinion: We must invest in global nutrition and end the need for foreign aid
William Moore, executive director of the Eleanor Crook Foundation, board member for Bread for the World and the Alliance to End Hunger, and member of the Advisory Board for the Centre for Innovation and Health at Concern Worldwide, discusses the importance of global nutrition investment, including its role in advancing U.S. economic and security interests. Moore writes, “Proper nutrition drives resiliency, stability, and prosperity. … Good nutrition also creates the pathway for countries to graduate from depending on international assistance to becoming self-reliant societies. If the U.S. and … partners continue to make smart nutrition investments at scale, perhaps even in our lifetimes — [we might see a time] when every child, every economy, and every society is properly fed and nourished, and the need for foreign aid ceases to exist” (4/4).
