W is for World Food Programme

Posted: April 29, 2011 in Uncategorized

The World Food Programme is a program run by the United Nations that fights worldwide hunger. WFP is one of the largest, if not the largest, humanitarian agency dedicated to wiping out hunger. In 2011, the WFP was responsible for bringing food assistance to over 90 million people in 73 countries.

WFP provides food assistance in emergency situations and helps institute programs to prevent against future hunger risks by making communities food secure. By using a strategic plan, the humanitarian agency is able to acheive the goal of reducing hunger, saving lives, and helping people restore and rebuild their lives after an emergency.

Donating, providing relief, and lending a helping hand are easily done through the WFP’s website. Sending e-cards, placing banners on websites, and even playing computer games help to spread awareness about global hunger and raise food funds for those in need. Free Rice, a trivia game, provides grains of rice to those in need. Every right answer is 10 grains of rice that goes to end worldwide hunger.

Writer’s can learn help end the hunger fight by joinging the WFP’s platform “Bloggers Against Hunger”. If you are a writer, have a blog, and want to end hunger, consider joining.
