Effective Programs Fight Hunger & Save Lives

Emergency Relief

From natural disasters to outbreaks of violence, WFP does whatever it takes to reach people wherever and whenever disaster strikes. With early-warning systems and pre-positioned supplies of food, WFP is able to respond immediately. Beyond food, WFP also supports telecommunications, rebuilds roads and works with local governments to get people back on their feet as quickly as possible.

Resilience Building

The bulk of WFP's work is aimed at helping people build the skills and acquire the resources they need to feed themselves, withstand future upheaval and become self-reliant. This happens in myriad ways: working with small-scale farmers to improve their techniques; providing food in return for locals' work on community assets like bridges and damns; and distributing debit cards that can boost local economies. The impact of these programs is felt for generations.

School Meals

Children from vulnerable families are often pulled out of school when they are needed to work at home. Last year, WFP made sure 16.4 million children stayed in the classroom and received a warm, nutritious meal. The return on investment is huge: for every $1 dollar invested, $10 dollars is returned in terms of education, health and productivity.

Women & Children

Last year, WFP reached 9.7 million children and 6.1 million women with programs to prevent and treat malnutrition. In fact, women and girls make up 52% of all beneficiaries. These programs reduce gender disparities, improve women's health and ensure children will make it to their second birthday free from the ravages of hunger.

WFP turns dollars into dreams

For less than the price of a cup of coffee, you can change someone’s life. Now that’s what we call impact.


It may not seem like much, but because WFP is highly efficient, it can deliver a nutritious meal for just 50¢.


Education can break the cycle of poverty and hunger. $50 a month can provide a child with school meals all year.


$75 can feed a family of five for an entire month. That’s 30 days of lifesaving breakfast, lunch and dinner.


$160 can provide a silo to a farmer that holds enough food to carry his family through the lean season.
