2011 - Working Together to Solve Hunger

Fighting hunger worldwide:  Every year WFP provides food assistance to more than 90 million people in over 70 of the world's poorest countries.  WFP's unique role as the United Nations frontline agency for hunger means it is present in some of the most remote, dangerous and neglected corners of the world.

WFP provides emergency food assistance in the aftermath of natural or man-made disasters and supports food assistance programmes that bridge the gap between relief and recovery, helping communities to build a better future.  WFP targets food assistance at the hungriest of the hungry, protecting livelihoods, providing nutritious food to those who cannot feed themselves and bringing stability to communities engulfed in turmoil.
