Food security

Tearfund partners and our operational staff work with small-scale farmers, herders and fishing communities all around the world so that they can have enough nutritious food all year round, whatever the weather or economic climate.

Our case studies in this section demonstrate approaches such as cash-for-work, seed fairs, agroforestry, improving agricultural techniques and nutrition, cereal and rice banks, advocacy on land rights and self-help groups.

Tearfund also influences aid policies to tackle the injustices that prevent people from being food secure.

Find out more in our policy reports which provide an evidence base to change policies and practices.
