The World Food Programme (WFP) is the world's largest humanitarian agency fighting hunger worldwide.
WFP is part of the United Nations system and is voluntarily funded.
Born in 1961, WFP pursues a vision of the world in which every man, woman and child has access at all times to the food needed for an active and healthy life. WFP work towards that vision with their sister UN agencies in Rome -- the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) – as well as other government, UN and NGO partners.
On average, WFP reaches more than 80 million people with food assistance in 75 countries each year. About 11,500 people work for the organization, most of them in remote areas, directly serving the hungry poor.
Careers at WFP
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. WFP does 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.
