The main initiative of the Food Security Group currently is the Kirchner Food Fellowship. We also have a number of very important initiatives that we are working on and will be announced soon.

KFF isdeveloping and testing new equity investment models to fund promising entrepreneurial businesses that positively impact global Food Security, first in North America and then in developing countries where poineering capital is needed most.
The Lucky Iron Fish
The Lucky Iron Fish™ is a safe, effective, easy-to-use solution for iron deficiency. It is simply a piece of iron that you cook with that releases the iron you need and is reusable for up to 5 years. Why a fish? The fish is a symbol of lucky in Cambodia, the country that inspired this health innovation – as well as being the country in which Lucky Iron Fish operates and invests, improving both the health and wealth of Cambodians. Iron deficiency impacts 3.5 billion people worldwide and the Lucky Iron Fish is an incredibly simple solution to this global health problem. For more information visit www.luckyironfish.com.
