A Well-Fed World began as an educational campaign in 1999 in response to the International Food Policy Research Institute's (IFPRI) "Livestock to 2020" report. This research warns of the dangers of the rapidly increasing livestock numbers, but does not seek to reverse the trend because they deem it "demand-driven."
In 2009, A Well-Fed World expanded to a program-based, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization to work at the local, national, and international levels to increase global food security, promote environmentally-friendly (green) food choices, and reverse the so-called "Livestock Revolution."
A Well-Fed World is a hunger relief and animal protection organization working with grassroots groups in the U.S. and internationally on feeding and food production programs. At the policy level, we promote nutritious plant-based foods as an animal-friendly, environmentally-friendly and efficient way to create a healthier, well-fed world for all.
Global meat consumption is doubling from 2000-2050. As top "over-consumers" of animal-sourced foods, we seek to cut U.S. consumption 50% by 2050 --> 50-by-50... as well as working globally to reverse the trend.
Our mission is:
To promote the benefits of sustainable, plant-based solutions in response to global food security, health, hunger, and environmental concerns.
To encourage NGOs, think tanks, social justice leaders, and government decision-makers to include the benefits of animal-free foods and reduced global meat consumption in their policies and recommendations.
To use our Sustainable Keys Global Grants program to provide financial and material assistance to locally-active groups with similar missions, especially in low-income countries.
Cycling plant-based foods through animals to produce meat is inefficient, unsustainable, and detrimental to food security and global hunger solutions.
Demand for animal products is not "given" or "fixed." Demand is created by cultural institutions, politics, and business interests. Demand for animal products can be altered through education campaigns and shifting priorities.
Producing and consuming fewer animal products is much-neglected but critical "part of the solution" for industrialized and developing countries. While this step is not a panacea, it will drastically improve key areas of concern for reducing global hunger: scarcity, population, prices, distribution, sustainability, pollution, and other related concerns.
