Achieving Zero Hunger - WFP in Nigeria from World Food Programme

Fighting Hunger Worldwide

We are the world’s largest humanitarian agency aiming to bring food assistance to more than 80 million people in 75 countries.

As the United Nation frontline agency in the fight against hunger, WFP is at a critical point in its history where its next steps can help pave the way for achieving zero hunger. While the organization continues to provide world class emergency response, it is focusing its efforts to help prevent hunger in the future. We do this through programmes that use food as a way to build assets, spread knowledge and nurture stronger, more dynamic communities. This helps communities become more food secure.

WFP is equipping its workforce with capabilities in a range of areas, including Food Security Analysis, Nutrition, Food Procurement and Supply Chain to ensure that the best solutions are delivered for the children, women and men whom we serve.
