This is, in my opinion, a nice idea, as long as it doesn't, like every other 'do good' initiative, lead to mandatory rationing, forced changes in diet, and other abuses of our basic rights.
In the end, however, it isn't going to do any good unless accompanied by population control. We already know that increasing the food supply leads to one specific and completely predictable outcome: population growth, which leads to even greater demands for food, water, energy and living space.
We have tried the experiment of increasing the food supply over 10,000 times, now (once each each year, when the growing season starts, or 20,00 times in those regions where there are two growing seasons), and the results never vary. Wherever settled societies grow food, they always experience a chronic lack of food because the population always outstrips the supply. Until we turn the equation on its head and regulate our population to fit within the existing food parameters, humanity as a whole will never know widespread food security.
Oh, and let's stop the mad gamble with monocropping and GMO's while we're at it. These are dead-end strategies which will only serve to make the inevitable even more painful and difficult to ever try to recover from.
