“No one should be hungry.”

WFP provides food assistance to more than 82 million people in 82 countries.

We do this by focusing our efforts on the most vulnerable: families affected by natural disaster and conflict, students in the world’s poorest schools, mothers, young children and women in developing countries and small-scale farmers.
