Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

A Challenge from Bill and Melinda Gates

Did you know most of the world’s poorest people are small farmers who grow their own food and make money from their plots of land? They often lack tools and resources that enable them to grow more and have enough crops to take to market.

One key to reducing hunger and poverty is to invest in these farming families. This is already happening—and there are successes around the world from these investments.

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has issued a challenge: Create a compelling message using your design, filmmaking, or writing skills that shows why investing in small farmers is good for the world. Take part and give a shout-out for small farmers.
