On Thursday, March 10th, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee unanimously approved the Global Food Security Act of 2016 (S. 1252), which authorizes a U.S. foreign assistance strategy that will help developing countries improve their agricultural sectors – helping produce greater yields and higher quality food, as well as providing better access to local markets where that food can be sold.
