Once a breadbasket of the world, Ukraine's people now wait in breadlines and face a growing hunger crisis.

HOW WE'RE HELPING THE UKRAINIAN PEOPLE
Conflict is the main driver of hunger and food insecurity in the world. WFP is on the ground inside Ukraine and neighboring countries to provide critical food assistance to those affected by this devastating war.
WFP delivers monthly food kits and ready-to-eat food rations, primarily in the southern and eastern parts of Ukraine where supply chains and markets are no longer functional.
To date, WFP has transferred over $400 million dollars to Ukrainians in need. Those eligible for cash-based assistance receive $75 – $22 per month, depending on a family’s size.
On behalf of the United Nations, WFP is in Ukraine and a number of neighboring countries to lead the emergency telecommunications and logistics clusters.
