Friends of the World Food Program Committee of Baltimore
Friends of WFP is a U.S.-based, nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that focuses on building support in the United States for the United Nations World Food Program (WFP) and other hunger relief operations.
Friends of WFP unites organizations and individuals committed to solving world hunger. Our education, advocacy and fundraising efforts in the United States support WFP’s life-saving global food assistance and development programs.
WFP is the world’s largest humanitarian organization, working to put hunger at the center of the international agenda and promoting policies, strategies and operations that directly benefit the poor and hungry.
In 2010, WFP aims to feed more than 90 million people in 73 countries. As the food assistance arm of the United Nations, WFP uses food to meet emergency needs and support economic and social development. WFP also provides the logistical support necessary to get food to the right people at the right time and in the right place.
The Baltimore Committee is a 100% volunteer organization that organizes and mobilizes volunteers in the campaign to end global hunger through fundraising, advocacy and awareness-raising activities in the Baltimore area.
