As the United Nations frontline agency fighting against hunger, the UN World Food Programme (WPF) is continually responding to emergencies. They save lives by getting food to the hungry fast, and work to help prevent hunger in the future through programs that use food as a means to build assets, spread knowledge and nurture stronger, more dynamic communities. In 2010, WFP aims to bring food assistance to more than 90 million people in 73 countries.
