Fighting hunger

The scandal of hunger

There’s enough food to feed everyone in the world – yet nearly a billion people are going hungry.

Food for thought

200 million children suffer from malnutrition. Could empowering women be the key to giving children a better life?

Providing food in emergencies

We provide life-saving food and nutritional support to millions of people every year.

Tackling malnutrition

When children have enough to eat, they grow up healthy, do better in school, and earn more as adults.

Supporting farmers

Helping farmers to grow more and earn more is a key way to reduce hunger and poverty.
