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. And with your help, we can achieve that vision. Join us today:
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.
