The coronavirus will push the number of severely hungry and malnourished people on planet Earth to 270 million people this winter. The World Food Program USA works in affiliation with the U. N., U.S. policymakers, corporations, foundations and individuals to help provide financial and in-kind resources and develop policies needed to alleviate global hunger. Join us in this virtual talk to learn more about the U. N.’s work on the front lines fighting hunger and famine since 1962, reaching up to 138 million of the world’s most vulnerable people every year. Find out about the challenge hunger poses today as well as about a variety of their COVID-19 response programs including, emergency relief, school meals, and small holder farming and how all of this has been affected by the coronavirus.
WFP USA believes that hunger is the world’s most solvable problem. Join the Cape and Island libraries for this important conversation.
