American companies understand that strengthening individuals, communities, and ecosystems around the globe is good for business. The U.S. Chamber Foundation Corporate Citizenship Center’s (CCC) latest report, Mapping the Food Security Landscape, aims to help the private sector maximize their impact in the food security space.

This report details the different types of food security work performed by nonprofits, NGOs, foundations, and government agencies so that companies can identify new and compelling ways they can support this type of programming.

The report also includes an all-new interactive database, which allows users to search by specific focus area and region, among other categorizations.

Mapping the Food Security Landscape begins with a brief history of food security, along with a description of food security today. After explaining the research methodology, the report outlines some significant findings, including the differences in how the organizations define food security and the various types of projects they launch. It concludes with thoughts for future work and collaboration.  While this analysis is not considered to be exhaustive, it is meant to be representative of the space.

Access the report to utilize the available resources and find out more information about work in the food security sphere.

The report was made possible with support from CCC's Food Security network, which includes Amway, The Dow Chemical Company, DSM-North America, and Sealed Air.
