About The World Food Program

“World Food Program USA (WFP USA) is a nonprofit organization that builds support in the United States to end global hunger. WFP USA engages individuals and organizations, shapes public policy and generates resources for the United Nations World Food Program and other hunger relief operations.”

“Imagine a world without hunger…what would it take? With nearly 1 billion hungry people around the world, how do we get there?

WFP USA believes that everyone has a role to play in eradicating hunger, from individuals to organizations, from governments to the private sector. Leadership at the highest levels of the U.S. government is a critical component of solving the problem.

We educate Members of Congress, the administration and other government officials about international hunger issues and specific policies that could improve U.S. government efforts to address global hunger. We also advocate for sufficient funding to ensure that U.S. government programs are reaching as many people as possible who are in need around the world.

To build support for strong U.S. leadership in addressing global hunger, we collaborate with and mobilize opinion leaders, businesses, grassroots networks, nonprofits, coalitions and others.” ~World Food Programme

“We can put an end to global hunger, but not without your help! More than 1 billion people are going hungry today. They need your voice to ensure that they are not forgotten in Congress. Members of Congress are elected to represent you in Washington, DC, and they want to hear from their constituents on what issues are most important to them. These tools will help you shape your message so you can speak to Congress on behalf of the world’s hungriest people. Whether you have one minute, two minutes or two hours, these tools will help you start making a difference today! ”
