About Feed the World
Originally established under the name of The Institute for Self Reliant Agriculture in 2009, Feed the World operates as a Washington State 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit.
The organization was established to carry on the “rural” efforts that were started, then discontinued, by The Ezra Taft Benson Agriculture & Food Institute (“Benson Institute”) at Brigham Young University, in Provo, Utah.
The Benson Institute has several decades of research and experience in working with smallholder farm families – which has provided the basis and framework for our existing programs. We aim to build on that foundation and further help families, communities and nations around the world.
