Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The production animal-sourced foods is rising at an alarming rate. The United Nations predicts meat consumption will double between 2000-2050, and that 60-70% more food will need to be produced to feed the predicted 9-10 billion people in 2050. There is widespread agreement that increasing livestock numbers and meat (over)consumption are "major threats" to the environment (especially the climate crisis), global food security, and animals (farmed animals, wildlife, pollinators, and the other animals that keep the ecosystem healthy). Despite this, decisionmakers and nonprofit leaders have historically focused on technological fixes to increase food supply and population planning/control to reduce food demand. So there is both the direct problem (the harmed caused by the production and consumption of meat, dairy, and eggs) and the problem of the socio-economic processes and policies that fail to advocate diet change toward more plant-based foods.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

A Well-Fed World is an international hunger relief organization advancing plant-based foods and farming to create a sustainable, nourished, and climate-friendly future.

Our mission is to strengthen plant-based feeding and farming solutions for impoverished populations and the world at large, while championing a shift away from the consumption and production of animal-sourced foods as part of any viable strategy to improve global food security and mitigate the climate crisis.

Ultimately, we seek to create a well-fed world - one in which all people have an abundance of nourishing, plant-based foods that maximize health for people, animals, and the planet. These nutrient-dense foods are to be produced and distributed in ways that prioritize public and planetary health for current and future generations.

Working through our Plants-4-Hunger and Global Grants programs, we financially strengthen and partner with highly effective, on-the-ground initiatives providing immediate plant-based food and farming assistance for people in their own communities.

We combine this direct local empowerment with institutional alliances to further our shared mission in ways that address root causes and create structural change.

Our research analyses provide nuance to complex issues related to the consumption and production of animal-sourced foods. In particular, we focus on the ways in which the livestock sector is a major driver of resource depletion, deforestation, and greenhouse gas emissions resulting in increased global food insecurity and climate destruction.

Our practical, multi-level approach provides tools for meaningful change so that individuals, NGOs, governments, and institutions embrace the benefits of plant-based foods and farming.

We provide funding and material assistance in the U.S. and globally.
We analyze and interpret research to make the findings more accessible and persuasive.
We network with global changemakers to incorporate the benefits of plant-based solutions.

We work through a global network of funders and grantees, annually distributing $1-2+ million in direct support, while also providing mentorship and free fiscal sponsorships.

Between 2009 and mid-2023, we have provided 2,800+ grants totaling $14+ million dollars in 95 countries. We are expanding the Plants-4-Hunger program for increased giving and advocacy.
