As a strategic alliance of philanthropic foundations, our mission is to leverage our resources and networks to help shift food and agriculture systems towards greater sustainability, security, and equity. We believe in the urgency of transforming global food systems, and in the power of working together and with others to effect positive change.

Since 2012, the Global Alliance for the Future of Food has been engaged in an innovative approach to funder collaboration. How we work is a critical component to realizing positive change. We emphasize the active participation and engagement of member foundations from all over the world.
