Opinion: We must invest in global nutrition and end the need for foreign aid
What has happened in virtually an instant in the context of human history is truly astounding. In the past 25 years, our world has cut hunger, poverty, and malnutrition in half and lifted a billion people out of poverty. Over our lifetimes, conditions in the world have improved by virtually every measure. Personally, I believe these facts and figures are among the most striking indications that God is moving in our time. As someone who comes from a long line of farmers and grocers, I also know American farmers have been a central driver of this global progress, putting affordable food on the world’s tables and keeping our country running.
