How to Help

Hunger is the world's greatest solvable problem.


Be Part of the Solution

When disaster strikes and hours can mean the difference between life and death, the World Food Programme (WFP) is one of the first on the ground to provide lifesaving assistance. When the emergency is over, our work is just beginning. We help families to become self-sufficient, children to get an education and communities to better withstand future food crises.

We are powered entirely by your donations. WFP is the world’s leading humanitarian agency fighting hunger worldwide. WFP reaches 82 million people in 82 countries with food assistance — but we need supporters like you to help us end hunger for good. 

Become a monthly donor

WFP USA is especially grateful for monthly donors. Knowing that we can rely on your support each month – with a gift of any size – makes an incredible difference in our efforts to end hunger.

Emergency Response: A Lifeline On the Front Lines

WFP is among the first humanitarian organizations on the ground to help hungry families in crisis. In conflict zones like Syria, Iraq and Yemen to regions of the world impacted by natural disaster, WFP works closely with national governments, the private sector and civil society partners to deliver life-saving food assistance when it matters most. The agency is also responsible for setting up vital telecommunications systems so the international aid community, government officials and local NGOs can coordinate relief and recovery efforts on the ground.
