Lack of access to healthy and nutritious food is a major factor in starvation and malnutrition around the world. UMCOR works with partners to improve farming and agricultural methods using eco-friendly practices, increase crop diversity and yields, expand market access, improve food-storage facilities, and boost nutrition in vulnerable households and communities. UMCOR’s food security grants give special consideration to holistic programs that focus on subsistence and small-scale farmers, particularly women, keeping in line with international standards to eliminate global hunger.
