Food Security Portfolio

ADRA does more than just give food to hungry people.

By providing families with ways to grow their own gardens or increase the crop yields of their farms, ADRA helps people discover true food security. Families with a surplus of food are even able to improve their economic standing by selling the extra.

ADRA gives people the food, nutrition, and tools not just to survive—but to thrive.
