Hunger is a complex issue and is often times related not only to agricultural production but to other factors like transportation, distribution and poverty. However, on the farm side, GMOs can offer resistance to certain pests, more efficient water usage and, as a result, increased yields. With an increase in yields more products are available for the public. Some farms participate in gleaning programs where extra crops are harvested and sent to food banks, schools and local community centers where individuals living in food insecure environments can get these items for their families.
For example, Farmers Feeding Florida works in cooperation with local food banks to collect fresh farm produce for the hungry. This food (not all is GMO) is harvested, packed and refrigerated for distribution through the Florida Association of Food Banks.
