We're sorting through the clutter about food labels, food production methods, and more.
By 2050, you’ll have 9,700,000,000 neighbors.
Adding nearly three billion people to the global population in the next three decades presents a serious challenge: how can we produce more food without using more resources? If we don’t act soon, we’ll lose the battle for a food-secure world—and we need a frank and honest conversation about how we can change that.
That’s where the ENOUGH Movement comes in. We’re a global community working together to ensure that every one of those people has access to nutritious, affordable food—today and in the coming decades. We envision a world where all nine-and-a-half billion of us are nourished, resources are conserved, and more human potential is realized.
With proper tools and investment, agriculture output in Africa could increase over 200% by 2030.1
In countries around the world, cost is the primary factor in food choice.2
Malnutrition affects every country on Earth and more than one-quarter of the world's population.3
The increasing demand for affordable meat, milk, and eggs means we will need 60% more animal-sourced foods.4

There is no one answer to the question of how we make our world more food-secure.
But it is only by working together that we can make a difference.
