The world food program WFP

more than 850 million people go hungry every day

Hunger is inextricably linked to many other problems, such as poverty, disease, and deprivation.  In the fight against hunger, food is obviously essential, but so are efforts to help the hungry become self-sufficient and break the cycle of hunger and poverty.  Recognizing this, WFP works in a number of ways around the world to fight hunger and the conditions that breed it.  Among its various projects, WFP has a particular focus on the following programs: School Feeding, and Food Aid and HIV/AIDS. (On Issues).
