About Food for Good

Poverty is widespread in sub-Saharan Africa, with 40% of people surviving on less than $1.90 a day.

That’s a huge statistic, but it’s much more than just numbers. It’s about real lives – farmers watching their crops fail year after year, children not getting the nutritious food they need to grow up strong and healthy.

How we're helping

By joining Food for Good, the global food industry is uniting to change this. Everything raised through Food for Good supports Farm Africa’s innovative projects in eastern Africa, helping farmers to grow more, sell more and sell for more.

Farm Africa works with communities, the private sector and governments to increase food production and develop farmers’ links to lucrative markets. With local staff on the ground, we pioneer techniques that boost harvests, build rural incomes, sustain natural resources and, ultimately, help end Africa’s need for aid.

Taking part in Food for Good is a great way for the food industry to come together and demonstrate a commitment to sustainable food production in eastern Africa. And by backing Food for Good, companies can help transform the lives of farming families in eastern Africa, while seeing tangible benefits for their own businesses.

Growers, producers, suppliers, retailers, chefs and restaurants all appreciate how Farm Africa unleashes the potential of farmers to increase their harvests and grow their businesses.
