Beans might be small, but they have big potential to help poor families grow a better future.
Feed the Future helps farmers in developing countries turn this potential into profit through growing more beans, both to eat at home and to sell for income. With more income, these farming families can buy other nutritious foods, access health care, pay for school, and save and invest in their future. Feed the Future also supports research to make beans more climate-smart and pest-resistant, so farmers have more options for meeting these challenges and sustaining progress.
