Fight Food Waste. End Hunger

Right now, millions of people are living on the edge of starvation while one-third of the world's food goes to waste. We need your help to bring our solutions to scale and feed the world's hungriest people.

Saving Lives. Changing Lives.

The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) has been on the front lines of the world’s worst hunger crises, fighting hunger and famine since 1962. Right now we’re taking on our largest scale-up ever in response to COVID-19, providing lifesaving meals to 109 million of the world’s most vulnerable people in more than 80 countries this year.
