WFP USA believes that everyone has a role to play in eradicating hunger, from individuals to organizations, from governments to the private sector.  We educate Members of Congress, the administration, and other government officials about international hunger issues and specific policies that could improve U.S. government efforts to address global hunger. 

Advocacy matters!  As a constituent, you have the power and the privilege to raise your voice and share your story about why global hunger matters to you.  Members of Congress are elected to represent you—and since the U.S. government is the largest donor to WFP, it is important that you learn about food assistance, and tell your Representatives to support funding for global hunger programs.

The latest assessment shows that further progress has been made towards the 2015 MDG target, which remains within reach for the developing regions as a whole, although marked differences across regions persist and considerable and immediate additional efforts will be needed.
