Dec. 2, 2020 | US Against Hunger: Behind the Frontlines
Wednesday, December 2, 2020 | 12pm – 1pm EST
Join us for Behind the Frontlines: Hunger and the Confluence of Conflict and COVID-19. This engaging discussion will explore the connection between hunger and conflict, with the added threat posed by COVID-19. We’ll examine the factors at play and take a behind-the-scenes look at the U.N. World Food Programme’s sophisticated operations. You’ll hear how more than 19,000 staff feed the most vulnerable people in the most challenging conflict zones, including the Sahel, Yemen and Syria. We’ll go behind the frontlines to explore the firsthand experiences of hunger, instability and those living on the brink, and what must be done to help them. We’ll show how the world is actually facing two intersecting pandemics – COVID-19 and extreme hunger – and the challenges and opportunities forecasted for these immense challenges in 2021.
