About United Nations World Food Programme “The World Food Programme (WFP) is the world's largest humanitarian agency fighting hunger worldwide, assisting some 80 million people in around 80 countries each year, including providing over 17.4 million children with nutritious food at school. WFP is on the ground with emergency food assistance in the aftermath of natural or man-made disasters and supports food assistance programmes that bridge the gap between relief and recovery, helping communities to build a better future. After an emergency is over, WFP works with local governments to help create food and nutrition safety nets to protect lives and livelihoods, ensuring that the weak and the vulnerable – especially children – get the right food at the right time. WFP does not endorse any product or service.” Click here for more information on the United Nations World Food Programme.
