U. S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Foreign Agricultural Service team together to lead global efforts to combat hunger and poverty and build more sustainable equitable, and resilient, food systems through the United Nations and others. According to the USDA they have invested $248 Million dollars in new school feeding projects through the McGovern-Dole International Food for Education and Child Nutrition Program.

Tyron Spearman explains what part the peanut industry is trying to take in this project, as well as other agriculture industries, in the United States.
