Tell Congress to Support
Global Food Aid
Over the last two years, we have seen a rise in extreme hunger. The events in Ukraine threaten to further increase food insecurity and global instability. Without considerable funding, tens of millions of people worldwide could slip further into crisis levels of hunger. Ask your Members of Congress to support supplemental funding for international food assistance.
Ask your Members of Congress to renew their support for international school meals, which helps fight child hunger around the world.

Paving the Way
to Zero Hunger
In the five-part series Paving the Way to Zero Hunger, WFP Goodwill Ambassador Andrew Zimmern shares the stories of farmers in Zambia who are fighting hunger with the help of WFP.
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.
