World Food Day

World Food Day is a celebration of hope, unity and the power of positive change. Help Farm Africa combat food insecurity across eastern Africa and be a part of something truly extraordinary!

Next World Food Day: Monday 16 October 2023

Food insecurity

In the face of an unprecedented hunger crisis, over 76 million people across eastern Africa are grappling with the devastating effects of the worst drought in 40 years and conflict related shocks. The situation is dry and dire, but we can help change this together.

Every day, Farm Africa work tirelessly to not only alleviate hunger but to empower smallholder farmers, creating a legacy of resilience against all odds.

This World Food Day we'd like as many companies to join and drive meaningful change together.

Farm Africa's impact

We help farmers adopt innovative farming techniques and gain access to drought-tolerant seeds. In 2022 we supported over 718,000 people across eastern Africa to become more resilient to climate extremes and withstand such extreme shocks.

The productivity of my crops has improved since these trainings – for example, my coffee yields are high despite the drought, thanks to mulching, which retains water. My income increased, I have been able to build myself a house and will be able to educate my children to a high level.
