The Food Security and Nutrition Network Gender Task Force is a community of technical specialists and practitioners working to improve gender integration into food security and nutrition programming with a focus on engaging men, women, girls, and boys. The Task Force is comprised of representatives from NGO Title II grantees and USAID representatives, providing a forum for sharing, adapting, refining, and disseminating information, methodologies, tools, and promising practices on gender integration for increasing positive impact of food security programs.
