SEE WFP’S IMPACT IN 2023
Last year, WFP responded to the world’s worst hunger emergencies and worked with communities to build their long-term food security. Our 2023 Statement of Impact brings you closer to the people we served, the lives we saved and the futures we changed.
Saving Lives. Changing Lives
The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) has been on the frontlines of the world’s worst hunger crises, fighting hunger and famine since 1962. Right now we’re taking on our largest scale-up ever, providing lifesaving meals to 160 million of the world’s most vulnerable people in more than 120 countries and territories this year.
What causes hunger?
Conflict is the #1 driver of hunger, destroying lives and homes while creating instability.
More frequent and extreme weather disasters are destroying vulnerable communities.
How we fight hunger
When conflict erupts or natural disaster strikes, WFP is there. We feed families on the front lines of our planet’s most dangerous and complicated crises.
Providing food for children in school increases attendance and improves focus. We are the largest provider of school meals in the world.
We help small-scale farmers not only recover from disasters, but adapt to be resilient against them through skills training and resources.
