About Us

Our vision is healthy, equitable, renewable, resilient, and culturally diverse food and agriculture systems shaped by people, communities, and their institutions.

The Global Alliance for the Future of Food is a strategic alliance of philanthropic foundations working together and with others to transform global food systems now and for future generations.

We first came together in 2012 with a shared belief that transformational change is needed in order to ensure a future of food that is sustainable, equitable, and secure, particularly in light of pressing global concerns like climate change, shifting economies and demographics, and health. The future of food is at stake and the status quo is jeopardizing the efforts of many foundations, governments, businesses, farmers, and others, to promote food access, food security, food equity, human health, and a sustainable environment.

We believe in the urgency of transforming global food systems, and in the power of working together and with others to effect positive change. Food system reform requires that we craft new and better solutions at all scales through a systems-level approach and deep collaboration amongst philanthropy, researchers, grassroots movements, the private sector, farmers and food systems workers, Indigenous Peoples, government, and policymakers.

As the Global Alliance, we aim to: 1) forge new insights and strengthen evidence for global systems change, 2) convene key food systems actors and facilitate meaningful dialogue, and 3) stimulate local and global action for transformational change to realize healthy, equitable, renewable, resilient, interconnected, and culturally diverse food and agriculture systems shaped by people, communities, and their institutions.

By combining our collective knowledge, expertise, influence, and resources, we can have greater impact than our individual organizations can alone.
