The World Food Programme is the largest humanitarian agency fighting hunger worldwide. Each year, on average, WFP reaches more than 80 million people with food assistance in 82 countries. The WFP helps villages and communities lift themselves out of poverty by providing food and resources to create self-sustainment in the most impoverished corners of the world. They are also the largest provider of school meals globally, helping to get children to school and keep them there.
