Problem Statement
Our idea seeks to end hunger in our country and also promote sustainable agriculture and food security.We aim to enhance the relationship between farmers and the general public and ensure farmers get the rightful recognition for the work that they do.

Solution
In order to reduce hunger and enhance the relationship between farmers and the general public ,we can have all the farmers from one state called together.This can be done in each state by their respective state governments.These farmers can be assigned particular districts to feed and assigned a particular crop to grow.So we will get to know the farmers who feed us.Since growing the same crop can hinder soil fertility,the crops grown can be alternated among the groups every year or depending on the duration required by the crop.This can then be exchanged between districts in the state.Further we can create an app where in the farmers,the crops they grow,the duration,and the progress of the crop are completely transparent to the public.This will ensure direct communication between the general public,wholesale traders and the farmers hence providing the necessary recognition that the farmers need.

Beneficiary
This will ensure regular supply of food,job security to the farmers,regular funding from the government and also recognition for the farmers who have never had that kind of recognition before.This might put an end to hunger and ensure food for everyone irrespective of the rich and poor,because when food is present in abundance cost will reduce enabling the below poverty line people to enjoy good food.

Innovation
In case of crop failure,the government will be forced to look into the problem and provide appropriate compensation because the farmers are now under the direct observation of the government.So the government cannot neglect the farmers and their problems.This will lead to reduction in hunger and food security.We would like to extend this idea further by creating an app where in the farmers,the crops they grow,the duration,and the progress of the crop are completely transparent to the public.This will ensure direct communication between the general public,wholesale traders and the farmers hence providing the necessary recognition that the farmers need.

India's Sustainable Development
The Indian farmers are directly profited by this method because they get job security as they are regularly paid by the government,regular food supply.This will avoid incidents of suicide among farmers due to loan problems.The general population will also get to know the farmers who provide them with food and this will enhance the relation between them.
