Food systems transformation requires everyone to do their part.

As an alliance of foundations, we have the privilege and the responsibility to use our resources and networks to get sustainable food systems on the political, economic, and social agenda. By combining our knowledge and expertise, we believe that we can have a greater impact together than our individual organizations can have alone.

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 are a unique coalition where individual foundations are able to amplify their work, act together, and take a position on pressing global issues without compromising their own unique missions.

The Global Alliance is not a grant-maker. Our unique contribution is to work together and with others to strengthen the evidence for global systems change, convene food system actors in meaningful dialogue, and stimulate local and global action for transformational change.



Our Members

Our members work on a range of issues from women’s empowerment in West Africa to large-scale supply chains out of South America, to addressing the root causes of climate change. In addition to the work we do together in the Global Alliance, members continue to work autonomously towards the goals and mandates set by their individual foundation boards.
