When conflict erupts or natural disaster strikes, WFP is there. It feeds families on the front lines of our planet’s most dangerous and complicated emergencies.
Without exception, the #1 cause of hunger in the world is conflict. See how and why at our Conflict & Hunger hub.
Food is often the first thing people need when catastrophe strikes. Natural disasters like typhoons and droughts destroy homes and farmland, leaving entire communities homeless and hungry.
Conflict and climate change force families to leave everything behind, leaving them with no way to put food on the table.
WFP does whatever it takes to reach the world’s most vulnerable people, and deliver the food and nutrition they so urgently need.
WFP operates the largest humanitarian transport network in the world. At any given time, 5,000 trucks, 92 aircraft and 20 ships are delivering food across the globe.
WFP delivers lifesaving emergency relief and coordinates on-the-ground logistics operations. From telecommunications systems to bridges and roads, WFP goes to the planet’s most dangerous and difficult-to-reach places.
