What We Do
Together, we can end hunger
Disasters, whether natural or manmade, often lead to food insecurity. Approximately 821 million people, or just over one in nine, live in hunger. Poor nutrition is an underlying cause of nearly 2.4 million childhood deaths each year.
Food assistance saves lives by addressing the most dire and immediate forms of food insecurity, while enhancing livelihoods, improving health and education, and empowering communities to become self-reliant.
It’s more than growing enough food.
It’s getting the right nutrition to the people who need it.
