Food For Peace

For more than 60 years, the Office of Food for Peace (FFP) has provided life-saving food assistance to vulnerable populations and reduced hunger and malnutrition so that all people at all times have access to sufficient food for healthy and productive lives.

FFP predicts, prevents and responds to hunger overseas. Through its emergency programs, FFP saves lives, reduces suffering and supports the early recovery of people affected by conflict and natural disaster emergencies through food assistance. FFP’s development programs equip people with the knowledge and tools to feed themselves, addresses the underlying causes of hunger, and reduces the need for future food assistance. Alleviating global hunger is critical to national security: where hunger persists, instability grows. By supporting the world's most vulnerable, FFP is building a more stable world and ensuring that people have the opportunity to lead healthy, productive lives.
