For the past 15 years, World Food Program USA has hosted an annual awards ceremony to recognize leaders who have played a critical role in the fight against global hunger.

This year, we are honored to present the award to Senator Jerry Moran (R-KS) and Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) in honor of their tireless leadership over many years to alleviate global hunger.

The event is on Wednesday, October 4, 2017 beginning at 5:30 p.m. with a reception to follow.

For questions regarding sponsorship opportunities or general event inquiries, please contact Katharine Emerson, Director of Strategic Partnerships at kemerson@wfpusa.org.
