The Global Alliance for the Future of Food was founded in 2012 with the aim of transforming food systems now and for future generations. We are a strategic alliance of philanthropic foundations that work together to leverage our resources and networks to help shift food and agriculture systems towards greater sustainability, security, and equity. 

We urgently need to transform global food systems. The Global Alliance has witnessed the power of partnership to achieve this positive change. Food systems transformation requires new and better solutions at every scale — ideas that take a systems-level approach and involve deep collaboration between the philanthropic sector, researchers, grassroots movements, private sector stakeholders, farmers and food systems workers, Indigenous Peoples, governments, and policymakers. 

For 10 years, the Global Alliance has taken an innovative approach to funder collaboration. We are uniquely positioned to catalyze active participation and the engagement of member foundations from around the world. 

We believe that genuine food systems transformation takes place when diverse people, networks, and actions intersect across sectors and issue silos in ways that are local and global, micro and macro. These intersections facilitate convergence around shared visions and values. Ultimately, we have seen how they can build critical mass and momentum for tipping points that lead to healthy, equitable, renewable, resilient, inclusive, and culturally diverse food systems that are dynamic and endure over time. 

Join us in transforming food systems together.
