2022 Annual report


World Food Program USA is a proud supporter of the United Nations World Food Programme. Since 1995, we’ve worked to inspire the American public – individuals, businesses and policymakers – to do everything they can to feed the world’s hungriest people. Take a peek into our 2022 Annual Report to see highlights from another record-breaking year.  

Humanity’s resilience was tested by multiple overlapping crises in 2022. A singular event – the war in Ukraine – revealed in new ways the interdependence of our food systems and gave rise to a global hunger crisis:

  • A record number of people – 349M – experienced severe hunger.
  • Of those, 49M people teetered on the brink of starvation, and…
  • Nearly 1M people in Afghanistan, Ethiopia, Somalia, South Sudan and Yemen faced famine-like conditions.

Despite enormous challenges, WFP remained committed to building a world where every human being has the food they need to reach their full potential.

WFP’s 2022 impact

In 2022, WFP scaled up to assist a record 160M people, a 25% increase from 2021.


WFP worked in over 120 countries and territories around the world.


WFP reached 160 million people with food and other assistance.


WFP directly provided school meals to 20 million children.


The theme of our 2022 Annual Report is resilience. While the immediate solution to hunger is food, the long-term solution to hunger is resilience. Below, you can see how WFP, whether through food and cash assistance, skills training, or land rehabilitation, aims to enhance people’s existing skills and knowledge with the resources they need to nourish themselves. In this way, resilience is at the heart of all WFP programs.


We are incredibly grateful to all our supporters – from individuals to corporations to institutional funders – who helped fuel WFP’s work in 2022. Your tireless resolve will help us reach our shared mission to end hunger. Read the full report to see the list of our most generous contributors.
