EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Michigan State University plans to use more than $18 million in grants to support efforts to fight hunger in Africa.

The grants are from the U.S. Agency for International Development as part of the Feed The Future Innovation Lab for Food Security Policy, a $70 million project portfolio managed by the university’s agricultural, food and resource economics department.

The East Lansing school says a $12.5 million grant will be used to assist Nigeria in strengthening its own food security policies and improve nutrition.

A $6 million grant will be used to help Senegal to increase its agricultural capacity.

The recently announced efforts support USAID’s work under Feed the Future, the U.S. Government’s global hunger and food security initiative.
