World Food Program USA - Together we can make a difference!
Solving complex problems requires expertise. As the leading humanitarian agency fighting hunger worldwide, the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP)* saves lives in emergencies and changes lives for millions through sustainable development.
Millions of children around the world lack access to the education and nutrition they need to unlock their potential. Your generous support will be designated to WFP’s school meals program. WFP is the world’s largest provider of school meals, reaching more than 18 million children last year at the average cost of 25 cents per meal. School meals often serve as the only reliable source of nutrition for children in impoverished communities. By easing the burden of putting food on the table, WFP removes hunger as a barrier to education and helps students concentrate and succeed in the classroom. WFP’s school meals can also become a lifeline for small-scale farmers. By using locally-grown crops whenever possible to source its school meals, WFP offers a stable market for struggling food producers. This “homegrown” approach also means a fresher and more diverse diet for students, including vegetables and dairy.
Additionally, at times of disaster, you will be able to make a one-time gift to support WFP’s response efforts. Hunger is often the first emergency when catastrophe strikes. Natural disasters like typhoons and droughts destroy homes and farmland alike, leaving entire communities homeless and hungry. Conflict and war forces families to leave everything behind—including their livelihoods, leaving them with no way to put food on the table. That is why WFP is among the first humanitarian organizations on the ground working with national governments to help hungry families in crisis. 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.
