World Food Programme (WFP)

In 1994, WFP became the first UN organisation to adopt a mission statement. It is the foundation on which we build our policy, defining the who, what, where and how of our ‘mission’ to eradicate global hunger and poverty. What is WFP’s Mission? As the food aid arm of the UN, WFP uses its food to: meet emergency needs; support economic & social development; provide the logistics support necessy to deliver food.
