Combating Hunger




More than enough food is produced on the planet to feed every person, yet nearly 690 million people go to bed hungry each night. While hunger is a massive issue, we believe that data is essential to improving food access. Tableau Foundation is working to fight global food insecurity by partnering with organizations that use data to improve the food supply chain from farming to delivering food to the world’s most vulnerable populations.

What we do

Food Security

Enable organizations to use data to improve production and yields from smallholder farmers who can deliver food in local communities.

Supply Chains

Help organizations use data to improve food supply chains to help get more food to more people in need.

Up-stream Hunger Prevention

Improve the use of data to identify and solve upstream issues that cause food insecurity, such as poverty, humanitarian crises, and climate change.
